“I sometimes would think of how I would run a school of thought, an attitude . . . “

Ricky Powell’s words above describing his work celebrating Pony’s 40th anniversary help to shed light on the popularity of sneaker collabs. A good portion of the appeal beyond collecting limited edition luxury goods is the implication that, when a brand or designer near to your heart contributes to a sneaker design you love, you’re getting very close to your own artistic expression of this middle ground. On the other hand, this pack of cap-toed Pony Vintage Slam Dunks and accompanying clothing and accessories is clearly Mr. Powell’s handiwork, everything from the waxed canvas uppers to the ‘Do You’ tagline resonating with Ricky’s personal outlook. You’ll see more shots of this capsul after the jump below; will the ‘fourth Beastie Boy’s first sneaker drop make it onto your summertime shopping list?

Brooklyn emcees the Beastie Boys lost founding member Adam Yauch to cancer last week, but the group still has three dudes intact if you count the guy who was once known as ‘the fourth Beastie’.  Street photographer Ricky Powell has seen the entire arc of hip-hop culture, from those ’80s golden era days to the current environment where something like Run-DMC’s deal with adidas is more like the rule than an exception.  But Powell manages to maintain some of that limited edition mystique by teaming up with one of the smaller major brands, and his Ricky Powell x Pony capsule most definitely lives up to his ‘Do You…’ creedo.  The black hightop Slam Dunks are fully vegetarian to match Ricky’s lifestyle, and a bunch of matching gear will be on tap whenever these hit retail.  Click through to see more from the upcoming Sneaker Freaker issue and stick with Sneaker News for release info.  via ST

Before Terry Richardson became a hipster god, Ricky Powell was the photographer most strongly tied to relevant youth culture.  Powell captured some of golden era hip-hop’s finest images put to film, and for his first sneaker collaboration, the Rickster will team up with a brand that got started just a year after he was born.  The Ricky Powell x Pony 40th Anniversary collection will include at least one new classically styled hightop done in simple black/grey/white with a TBD pattern on the sockliner, as well as some clothing options, so click through for more and stick with Sneaker News for updates on the Pony 40th anniversary collaborations.  via Provider
