Earlier this month, all of streetwear’s biggest brands headed to Long Beach to bring their very best to ComplexCon. Each year ComplexCon sees some of the most exclusive releases that includes everything from apparel to sneakers. On this year’s list of limited-edition drops was the Staple x Mache Runners. After a successful early bird drop of the sneaker at ComplexCon, Mache and Jeff Staple set a global release date of their highly anticipated collaboration.
This Mache Runner serves up a new iteration of a classic by reworking the colors and themes from the iconic Staple NYC x Nike Dunk SB Low “Pigeon.” The upper has classic grey suede with a perforated toebox and cool grey accents. The toecaps and heel counter add dark grey contrasts that match the eyestays. Orange detailing appears on the outsole, pull tab, and sock liner that is made with plush fleece. Staple NYC’s signature pigeon is embroidered on the heel counter and makes the perfect tribute to the original pair. To finish, the sneaker sits atop a speckled midsole.
Mache and Staple will be doing a retail tour in partnership with the three flagships of Atmos USA. At each stop, there will be a full size run of Mache Pigeons so interested buyers can actually try-on a pair.
Jeff Staple dives deeper into their Atmos retail tour saying, “Very often my releases are immediately sold out and go for insane resell prices. This means a lot of people get to see the shoes online, but they never get to actually touch, feel and wear the kicks in real life. That’s why this retail tour at Atmos is so special. Whether you plan on buying or not, I thought it’d be cool to give people the opportunity to rock a pair of Pigeons IRL. Hey, even if it’s just for the flex on the ‘Gram — it’s all good. And also, Mache and I will be at the locations so we can meet and greet anyone out there wanting to learn more about our collaboration.”
