From Frozade salesman and cool substitute teacher to capturing the likes of Warhol, Haring, the Beasties, Run DMC, PE and Sophia Coppola on camera, life’s been a heck of a ride for Ricky Powell.

Simple yet poignant, these Powell x PONY Slam Dunks feature Ricky’s signature on the tongue and his famous ‘Do You’ exaltation dotted throughout the lining. Harking back to an era of clean, uncluttered sneaker design, these vegan joints reflect Powell’s life-long love of animals.
