With the sneaker industry as lucrative and buzzed about as it’s ever been, ancillary markets are filling up with complementary products, from sneaker artwork to accessories to cleaners. Enter Pin Drop NYC, the latest, greatest niche company from the epicenter of sneaker culture, Nike Roshe Run Donna .
Dedicated to finding new ways to represent your favorite classic kicks, the folks at Pin Drop have created a line of sneaker pins. Each is a dead ringer for an iconic shoe — Air Mag, Air Max 90s, most of the prized Air Jordans, and so on — simply scaled way down and created as a solid metal pin.
Your friendly neighborhood Nike Air Force Donna managed to get his hands on a few, so I can personally attest that the attention to detail is top notch, the aesthetics flat out cool. The miniature size makes them an easy addition to any number of things, from your bulletin board (do people do that?) to your lapels (people do that; see below).
If you missed the Pin Drop NYC table at Sneakercon, worry not; their Webstore is up and running and they’re constantly adding new styles. What’s your favorite?
