PONY City Wings - Release Information
words // Brandon Richard
Before there was Nate Robinson in "Kryptonates," there was Spud Webb's historical 1986 Dunk Contest performance in the PONY City Wings. Laced up in a low-top version, Spud took on the role of David to teammate Dominique Wilkins' Goliath, clinching the title in the final round with a self-lob, reverse jam that even left Michael Jordan in amazement.
Twenty-seven years later, PONY returns to the scene, first serving up a reissue of the City Wings in three colorways next month.
Sporting a high cut, perforated ankle panels and a solid rubber sole, the City Wings will released in White/Black-Red and White Grey during the first week of August, with the Black/Red pair to follow on August 15. Retail is set at $80 each and you'll be able to pick them up at CNCPTS, 1973, West NYC, atmos, Wish, Rime, Packer, UBIQ and more.
People always say to me, when you get to the NBA, dont forget about me. Well, I should have said back, if I dont make it to the NBA, dont you forget about me.
