In the 2000’s, LEGO not only expanded its offerings to include monuments and Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, but also proved it could be co-opted to earn hipsters mainstream fame. It worked for the White Stripes and more recently for block-building jewlers Dee & Ricky, who’ve parlayed their trinkets into some substantial viral influence. The Dee & Ricky x Pony Slam Dunk keeps the whimsical childhood theme going with a felt board construction that allows you to apply custom letters to their black woolen uppers. Add in asymmetrical Pony stripes, multicolored eyelets and a neon leopard print lining, and you’re dealing with one of the most insane collaborative releases of this entire year, one most certainly befitting their designers. Check them out in greater detail after the jump and grab yours from Paris’ colette.
