Jeff Staple's ascent to streetwear superstardom can basically be traced back to 2005, when he designed one of the most highly-coveted Nike Dunks of all-time. Known simply as "The Pigeon Dunk", the sneaker incorporated his iconic pigeon logo and a grey/pink color scheme into the timeless silhouette. Since then, his avian logo has graced both his own Staple Design clothing and a handful of other collaborative efforts, including those with New Balance and Kangol. As for Staple's Lower East Side Reed Space, the store carries some of the best streetwear labels on the market, such as FUCT, Norse Projects, Fragment, Reigning Champ and Undefeated. This all boils down to the simple fact that, as both a designer and retailer, Jeff knows what the fuck is up. And, yes, while "best" year end lists are necessary, pointing out the absolute worst of the worst is more our speed. And that's why we turned to Staple to name his worst sneakers of 2013. Here they are in no particular order. Try not to throw up.
