      In simple words….”You don’t know shit!!” There is nothing at all similar to the? Jeff Staple x New Balance 575 ?Pigeon?. First it should be plainly obvious they are not close to the same shoe model at all,? not even a little bit “similar”. Secondly, the colorways are completely different. Know your sneakers and history before you comment troll!!!!!!!

    I believe all the hating on this shoe is because you cant afford/cop these shoes for whatever reason. If you are wanting to hate on something, hate on yourself.?

    they are nice. ill cop to support NK and i LOVE new balances. but at the same time, they are VERY similar to the pigeon 575s (which i own and love, btw). I like em, but just think a bit more creativity could have gone into the shoe.?

    Fell in LOVE with the NB 1500 after copin a pair from Alife on Rivington in like ’06-7
    They were. New Balance 1500 Ian Byer Centenary Editions, that is the best colorway, and I beat the crap out of em, so comfortable, still are, but not ds anymore!

    So awesome! I spoke with Matt (or whoever runs the @NiceKicks account) on twitter before about the W124 Mercedes-Benz. Amazing car, was my first too. it’s crazy because we had a conversation about the car but I never knew he was gonna do a collaboration with New Balance based on the 500E. Wonderful execution.
