Fashion continues to be a large play for today’s Hip-Hop’s generation. Joey Bada$$ has been announced as the new Creative Director for PONY.
As the first ever CD for the apparel brand, Joe will be launching a capsule collection to celebrate the new partnership. He worked with the design team to personally concept the “Pro Era” shoe. Four models will feature his signature colors over a suede upper and white midsole; all with the PONY Chevron markings of course.
He took to his Instagram to make the official announcement. “Just been crowned the first official Creative Director of @PONYworldwide and my first signature PE top star sneakers are available at URBAN OUTFITTERS right now!! link in bio!!! #2018#ad.”
