To commemorate the Year Of The Horse, PUMA is releasing the “Japan Basket Pony”, a Made In Japan limited edition model.

While the silhouette of these low-top sneakers were a staple of basketball referees in the 1970’s, the shoes are making a come back. PUMA’s update is available in either a monotone black or brown smooth leather upper and dressed in real pony hair above and below.

This new show will be released exclusively in Japan — in limited quantities — this Friday, January 31st at Mita Sneakers, Puma Harajuku and Puma Osaka.
