After MaZe previewed the White Pigeon New Balance 575 x STAPLE in the [KATC StockRoom HD for August], we’ll take a more detailed look at the upcoming release. The second collaboration between New Balance and STAPLE Design on the NB 575, the White Pigeon New Balance 575 takes a different approach to the infamous Pigeon collaborations.
Aptly named the “White Pigeon”, the V2 575 does not feature the Grey base that defined all of the other Pigeon sneakers. Instead, the White Pigeon features an Off White/White based upper with Off White suede and White mesh. The Grey isn’t completely gone though, the New Balance “N” is done in Grey reflective and there is Grey reflective piping around the toebox. The tongue tab features a graphic of the NYC skyline and the words “CITY 575 V2″. The underside of the tongue tab features the silhouette of a White pigoen and “White Pigeon” written in Japanese. The Pigeon’s traditional Salmon color selection is back in the V2 575 as well lining the “N” and the ankle collar. The outsole is also done in full Salmon. The Pigeon appears on the heels of both sneakers with a flying pigeon on the left sneaker and the traditional perched pigeon on the right sneaker.
The White Pigeon New Balanace 575 x STAPLE is set to release very soon at select accounts around the world. The Reed Space will be the only US based account to carry the sneaker.
