🐦📰 My man @janzabdj (maybe the most prolific Pigeon Dunk collector in the world) just reminded me that on this day, Feb 22nd, 15 years ago ... sneaker culture changed forever.
To revive my IG post, I waited for this date. 15 years ago,nobody know how the shoe is going to look like but they camped out 3 days in advance for it. A shoe to represent New York City. Thugs were around with machette,the cops had to be called in and riot broke out. Yes,for a shoe. My first pair was in 2015 when I traded a few pairs for my first Pigeon SB. I cried when I got it cause its a grail for me. Subsequently, I got my 2nd,3rd,4th and so on. That 1 pair of shoe which I want to own MULTIPLES. For me,this pair changed the entire sneaker culture. How resell started from 1k to 20k now. 29 Aug 2017, another dream came true when Jeff came to Singapore and signed every single pair of mine that I brought along. If you ask me,I am still hunting more of this. To match my favourite pair, will be the Staple pants which never fail to impress people.
To Jeff & Staplepigeon team, Happy 15th Anniversary. This pair means alot to me and THANK YOU for everything. I am waiting for you guys again here. - 4 days ago
