Product Details
In 1972, American brand Pony declared NYC its stomping grounds—so, naturally, its signature chevron-logo sneaker was born to, well, stomp around in. (That equestrian-sounding name? Actually an acronym for "Product of New York.") This season marks the long-awaited relaunch of its women's kicks—and this is one of the very few places that you can get them. In a fresh black and white design, these high-tops look as cool with jeans and a tee as they do with dresses. When you select your size, "H" equals a half size.
  • Unisex sizing: Please size down 2 sizes; a size 4 is a women's size 6.
  • Man-made upper.
  • Rubber sole.
  • Import.

Pony® Topstar Hi High-Top Sneakers

Pony® Topstar Hi High-Top Sneakers is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More stylish this time around My 1st time ever owning PONY shoes! I really like them even though they aren't leather, they're a classic from my era! However the recommended sizing can be confusing, I am a true 9.5 women and 8 in men and unisex, but after speaking with a consultant, she recommend I get a size 7.5 which was too snugged. Re-ordered in my normal unisex size 8, perfect! So whatever your normal unisex size is, I would have to say true to size for these shoes, they aren't bigger than Vans, which was used for the sizing calculations. About to order the low tops!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style I only will comment on the size cuz the rest is as it is, perfect. The run big, I am 8EU then I ordered 6.5 which is equivalent but no, they were big :( I had to order again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very cute, but not as slim as they seem online These shoes get me tons of compliments. They're cool and minimal! I had to lace them pretty tightly to keep them looking slim, however. They do tend to get a little puffy (think skater shoes circa 2002, for those of us who were in middle school in the early aughts). Overall, though, they're cute and comfortable and definitely worth the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Misleading description, uncomfortable shoe I ordered these online thinking they were a great price for a pair of simple leather sneakers. On the website the description clearly states they are leather. However, when I received them, I noticed that the material is very stiff and the label inside indicates that the upper is all synthetic. While I don't mind a synthetic shoe from time to time, the material quality is not good. It is pretty stiff and does not bend naturally with the foot. Wherever the material bends, a crease forms and looks very noticeable since the shoe is white. Furthermore, the pair I got had some yellowish staining already. I felt that the material didn't look good, wouldn't wear well, and was very uncomfortable. The stiffness is particularly bad around the ankle, where it rubs against my ankle bone and hurts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute sneakers I will say I wish these were real leather because I think these might scuff more easily, but otherwise I love them. They're comfortable and sleek and I love that the high top doesn't come up too high and make my legs look short. I normally wear a size 6, and ordered the 4.5/6.5 because that was all they had left. They fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, sleek sneaker for city walking Bought these when I was heading to Stockholm and Paris - perfect, stylish city sneaker that's comfortable for walking a lot. Note, they are men's sizing! It says it in the description but I wasn't paying attention and had to exchange them. You need to go two sizes down for women's. Looks and feels amazing though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old school style and comfort Super comfy, look fresh and modern with dresses and jeans. Thinking of buying another pair as backup for when I wear this pair out - I love them that much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Kicks I love these shoes and get complements on them every time I wear them! They look great with dresses or jeans and the are very comfortable. I sized down 1.5 sizes as suggested, and they still are a little wide - but in a normal comfortable sneaker way and I wouldn't swap for a smaller size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful purchase Have been wearing these nonstop since I got them. They have a great, classic look and the quality is excellent. I normally wear an 8.5 so I ordered the 7 (as noted in the description to order a size and a half down) and they fit perfectly. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality & style Although a little bulky, these shoes are perfect and comfortable! They fit as expected and came with white and black shoe laces. Absolutely love these shoes!
