Pony x Dee and Ricky Slam Dunk High

Designers Dee and Ricky are recognized for their fashions that allude to childhood. Motivated by memories of their uncle, who gave them PONY gear when they were young, they translated that youthful enthusiasm into the playful Slam Dunk High (Velcro), which debuted in 2011. It features block letters that Velcro to the felt uppers of the shoes and eight sets of colorful interchangeable shoestrings, allowing the wearer to customize the look; there is even a Velcro PONY chevron.
