Founder and creator of Staple Design and Reed Space, Jeff Staple is a man whose credentials speak for themselves. Having put 15-plus years in the game, Jeff has gone from being a student at Parsons selling hand-silkscreened T-shirts to starting his own global design and consulting company. Staple is a brand that has not only become synonymous with design and aesthetics, but whose message represents the street culture and NYC lifestyle. Jeff Staple's input has always been valued, and he's worked on many collaborations, most notably one of Nike's most coveted collab sneakers, the Nike SB Pigeon Dunk. With his respected opinion and point of view, Jeff Staple offers us his worst sneakers of 2013. Do you agree?
