Brand: New Balance x Salehe Bembury

Fresh off collaborations with Joefreshgoods, STRAY RATS, JJJJound, and Kith, New Balance teases as an upcoming collaboration with Salehe Bembury, Versace’s VP of Men’s Footwear.
After working with Kanye West on YEEZY combat boots, Salehe was recruited by the Italian luxury house for his innovative work in futuristic design.
Known for his Medusa-infused Chain Reaction at Versace, Salehe’s collaboration with New Balance offers him a chance to reflect on his story; hence the metaphorical tagline ‘Peace Be The Journey’.
Inspired by the great outdoors, imagery reveals a shoe box that is wrapped in a painting of a river with sunset orange and blue colors throughout.
Although the official model has not been revealed, Salehe sat down with Footwear News and confirmed the silhouette is an existing New Balance shoe.
He also noted that the shoe will be released in the Fall alongside more unreleased collaborative work.
Stay tuned as updates emerge!
