No rapper of the current era is more synonymous with New York City than Joey Bada$$, and so it made sense for him to link up with a shoe brand similarly steeped in the spirit of the Big Apple. The Badmon first announced his partnership with Pony last year, and we're finally getting our first look at what they’ve created.
The New York natives have taken to Pony’s Topstar Lo Lux, dressing it in deep burgundy suede with tonal laces and midsole. Branding is kept minimal, with Pony’s chevron logo perforated into the shoe’s side, while Joey’s co-sign is celebrated with a debossed ‘Badass’ at the midfoot.
Releasing with a similarly Badass-printed capsule collection, the Topstars are available now exclusively from Urban Outfitters.
