Nike have been slow to make the Air Max Zero part of their regularly updated sneakers. But the latest micro-run of Zeros is definitely something special. Most sneakerheads will instantly recognize the grey, white, and orangey-red colorway as Jeff Staple's signature. Otherwise, the pigeon logo near the toe-box should be a dead giveaway.
And designer toy fans should recognize this look too. Kidrobot teamed up with Staple back in 2011 to create a 7 inch vinyl version of his clothing brand's logo, which symbolizes the omnipresence of the bird of urban paradise. These sneakers were designed specifically for the Milan-based SneakPeek, with only 75 editions available.
So, images will have to do, but this collaboration is a good sign for things to come! Check out the interview with Staple over at Hypebeast.
