PONY's Topstar Is a Retro Dream

Date: November 12 2018

By: Cesca Benson


If you’re looking at PONY’s Topstar thinking, ‘Hey, that looks familiar’, you’d be correct. The New York brand’s sleek sneak is modelled off the Starter, from 1975, and then updated for modern-day sartorial sensibilities.

Steeped in that history, and the spirit of the Big Apple, the Topstar brings the silhouette’s retro styling into the 21st century. It keeps the Starter’s simple lines, solid construction and cup sole, but adds a low-top version to the mix for those looking for more street-ready steez.

The branding is stylish in its simplicity — monochrome uppers and contrasting PONY Chevrons ensure that they’ll pair perfectly with whatever ‘fit you’re rocking. A final update comes by way of the heritage logo on the tongue, as a nod to the brand’s decorated past.

Looking for some sophisticated stylin’ in your rotation? These are available in white/black, black/white and white/red versions now at JD Sports.
