The Staple Pigeon symbol has appeared on sneakers from brands across the world, including the likes of FILA, PUMA, Nike, Ewing, Clarks, Cole Haan, and more. Now, New York-based brand adds New balance to the list, thanks to the Pigeon X-Racer, coming soon.

Jeff Staple’s famous Pigeon logo is still set to debut on a new shoe this year, just not the one we originally thought. This week, atmos, New Balance, and Jeff himself teased an upcoming three-way collaboration between the various parties, that sees the legendary pigeon symbol applied boldly to New Balance X-Racer All-Terrain. A surprise indeed, this is the first time Staple has teamed up with New Balance, so we are glad to see the eye-catching logo reappear here. The new project applies a somewhat split color scheme to the New Balance X-Racer, starting with a blacked-out forefoot, from the toe box to mudguard and midsole, while the midfoot and heel feature a plain white base layer reinforced by layers of black, purple, and grey material. The pigeon logo itself graces the lateral heels of each shoe, shown in full-color embroidery on the left, while the right shoe is simply a black silhouette. The release is also accompanied by a small apparel collection, including hoodies and t-shirts.


The upcoming three-way collaboration between atmos Japan, Staple Pigeon, and New Balance has not yet been announced for release, though we are expecting these to drop sometime before the end of 2020. The “Pigeon” colorway of New Balance’s X-Racer All-Terrain will likely be available in extremely limited quantities, and coming with a heightened price tag to match. Check out the early images below for a better look at the project, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more information on this release.
