About five months after Pony unveiled their special release with Ricky Powell, P-O-N-Y is T-O-N-Y (Top Of New York) status celebrating their 40th anniversary this year with the Funky Uncle leading the campaign. Like a fresh pair, the Rickster’s sneaker knowledge is not to be touched or scuffed. The famed photographer/writer/hustler has lived through the era of Pony’s impact on pro and streetball. Their crossover into hip-hop culture, Ricky could speak volumes on it, which he’ll probably address this Friday for his show at NYC’s Klughaus Gallery. Pony’s new capsule collection (T-shirt and kicks) includes two tees: one with Ricky’s life instructions “Do You”; the other, a one of his timeless black and white photos; thirdly, the sneakers are canvas hi-tops keeping your ankles cuffed without controversy. Bling blaow.
