One of the colorways is predominantly black with hits of yellow and green colorway, a look that Pony said is inspired by Italy and the brand’s deep-rooted connection to the sport.” PONY will also release the shoe in a classic white and black colorway. The looks were designed using premium full-grain leather, and feature leather linings and cushioned footbeds to offer “heritage aesthetics with modern comfort.”
