Sneaker designer Zhijun Wang has unveiled a new custom New Balance 1600 sneaker called the “Pigeon.” The sneaker’s name is not just a subtle hint to its artistic inspiration or something like that – there’s an actual depiction of a pigeon spreading its wings on the shoe’s heel.
As you can see in the above gallery, these sneakers are pretty cartoony – meaning only the coolest people alive could pull off wearing them (maybe Kanye West will be seen sporting a pair soon).
In addition to the above gallery of images, you can see a video of the New Balance 1600 “Pigeon” from Zhijun Wang below.
