UPDATED DIPT NYC ® NEWS: Hot Off The Press Sneaker Release Out Of Florida Based Silvano Apparel – “The Fly High Silvano Pigeon”

Posted in Kix with tags , , , , on March 24, 2010 by The Ice Cream Man

If you didn’t know, Florida-based sneaker aficionado Courtney Cox has opened a sneaker spot by the name of Project 51 [Local winner of the best of sneaker store 09′] in Coconut Grove, Fl and taken it upon himself to creat his own line of kicks with Silvano Apparel.  At press time we could not find a website for Project 51.  The colorway looks much like Jeff Staple’s SB Pigeon & you can also see an actual Pigeon on the shoe [Not sure what Jeff would think of this].  For more information you will need to hit up Silvano Apparel’s website which at this time you can only enter your email information to gain more info on the release [I wouldn’t want to be the one working that inbox].  Personally kinda dig the lines on this high top and also this colorway but my reaction is mixed otherwise.  I dig the actual shoe shown here but I DO NOT dig individuals biting off of other people’s creativity & originality which is what could be be going on here [regarding Jeff’s shoe]!  We are not sure as of now what other colorways will be available or exactly when but I have added the phone number below if you wish to give them a ring.  I can actually foresee a cease & desist letter already in the mail on these.

While expressing you’re thoughts some of you wanted to see a few more colorways besides for the Pigeon Edition. Thankfully we have just that. Courtney supplied us with a shot of a few additional colorways of the Fly High, without the iconic pigeon logo. Courtney hasn’t told us exactly when the sneakers will be available but it was revealed that the Fly High “Pigeon” is scheduled for a release in August so it’s quite possible these will be releasing around the same time.
