PONY stands for “Product Of New York” founded in 1972 by Roberto Muller. PONY made its way from the tough streets of New York City into hitting all the major sports in the world. Guys like Pelé, Spud Webb, & Reggie Jackson have all repped PONY and left a huge imprint on the sneaker brand at the time.

Here’s a brief glimpse into their heritage timeline since 1972:
