Personally designed by our Founder and Creative Director, Liam Bowden, this timeless silhouette is intended as the only slide you’ll ever need. Gansu is here.

 “We want to create footwear that will be wardrobe staples, that embody what Deadly Ponies are known for - sumptuous and sustainable leathers in unique yet classic designs.”

- Liam Bowden

Taking its moniker from The Flying Horse of Gansu, a Han Period bronze statue from the Chinese Province of Gansu, our Gansu slide is intricately handcrafted with a lamb leather upper, with textured bovine leather over a moulded rubber sole.

“We were humbled by the response to our first footwear capsule back in July, and are pleased to further expand the Deadly Ponies footwear offering, introducing the limited Gansu slide, just in time for summer.” 


Responsibly made, the Gansu Slide plays with symmetry in its twisting, supple lamb leather, providing comfort built for longevity in neutral colourways, black, and nougat.

A rubber heel detail provides extra grip, and embossed logos feature on both the sole and footbed, with all leather sourced from certified gold Leather Working Group partners.

An exemplar of our signature quality - he’s timeless, sustainable, and recognisably unique. The Gansu Slide is on a limited run… so put your best foot forward to avoid missing out on the silhouette of the summer.
