Pony x Footpatrol TopStars

After hosting Pony's Ricky Powell collab collection, one of the most reputable sneaker stores in London - Footpatrol - teamed up with Pony once again and dropped a collaborative eclectic set of kicks that bridge two very different yet similar basketball cultures: New York and London all wrapped up (or better said tied up) into one.

The TopStar rendition sits at the junction between the two worlds in classic grey suede - light or dark - that features a perfed upper chevron on one side and bright basketball orange leather chevron on the other. Also unique about this sneaker is the laser etched heel with the evident “Gas Mask” branding, custom tongue label which celebrates both brands, and lasered heelcaps with lines inspired by the “ribs” of a basketball. It’s no secret that the ubiquitous sport breathes through every fiber of this sneaker.

To further bring together the two different playgrounds, the shoelaces - in colors of orange, dark and light grey - are decked with the names of both cities, New York and London, one on each side. It’s all in the details with these kicks. Check’ em out for yourself ....
