A Closer Look at the Salehe Bembury x New Balance 990v2
When it comes to sneaker collaborations, Salehe Bembury is king. With projects with Crocs, Vans, and even Moncler under this belt, the New York City-born fashion icon is now adding another silhouette to his ever-expanding New Balance partnership with the Salehe Bembury x New Balance 990v2. First teased earlier this year, let's get our closest look yet with these crisp shots from @arab_lincoln.
This 990v2 marks the third New Balance model that Bembury has worked on. Working on top of a rose mesh base, pastel pink suede wraps around the entire upper while fuzzy purple fleece adorns the "N" logo across the lateral and medial sidewalls. Underfoot, the ABZORB midsole is dipped in a peachy hue, and the insole is crafted from a sustainable cork material and printed with co-branded detailing.
As if that wasn't enough, Salehe takes on the comes with extra laces and a special edition shoebox that reads "Sand Be The Time." Acting as a spiritual sequel to his 2002R "Water Be The Guide," you definitely don't want to miss this.
The Salehe Bembury x New Balance 990v2 "Sand Be The Time" is set to drop in December, so keep it locked at The Edit LDN for more updates as they come through. While you're here, you might as well take a sneak peek of the JJJJound x New Balance 991!
