Last night 25.7.13 saw the launch event for the PONY x FOOTPATROL TOPSTAR PACK collaboration take place at the premium retailers home on Berwick Street, London. Unfortunately due to work commitments we were unable to attend but from the looks of the coverage on Instagram, we missed a pretty decent night… which was gutting.
The pair come together for the first time to collaborate on two shoes, the TOPSTAR HI and it’s little bro, the TOPSTAR OX. Chosen for their clean shape and simple make up and drawing inspiration from the outdoor basketball courts of New York City (PONY is an acronym of Product Of New York) both shoes keep things straightforward, and boast a premium rough suede upper sat on a textured one piece sole unit. The colourways are a nod to the hues of the Big Apple and the orange leather detailing mimics the texture of a hard worn basketball.
FP are never one to miss a trick on the dual-branding of their projects and the TOPSTARS sport both the retailer and the brands identities, which come together in an excellently subtle logo on the tongue label that also carries through on the vintage-style boxes too. With three sets of laces, all repping the names of their respective home cities, the project is finished off to an excellent standard and at a price you’ll be more than happy to pay.
Dropping exclusively In-Store tomorrow, Saturday 27.7.13, the PONY X FOOTPATROL TOPSTAR HI & OX will be available from a UK5 – 11 and if there’s any left over after the weekend, they’ll be available for mail order from Monday.
