Without a shadow of a doubt, the Rich Paul x New Balance 550 "Cream" is one of the best 550s ever made. That said, after over two years, sneakerheads are beginning to wonder if we'll ever get a sequel. Well, while these rumours have yet to be officially confirmed, it looks like its successor has finally arrived in the form of the Rich Paul x New Balance 550 "Mauve" – and here's everything that we know so far.
Bearing a striking resemblance to the "Cream," the "Mauve" has a few differences that are definitely worth noting. Working on top of a mesh base, it's overlaid by buttery suede panels that are dipped in a pastel purple palette. Premium leather features across the "N" logos, while woven cotton laces tie everything together.
Co-branded detailing can be found on the tongue tag alongside a bouquet of roses, and this floral pattern extends towards the heel of the sneaker. All of this then comes packed in a special edition shoebox that's been made for all the New Balance fans out there.
Not much else is known about the Rich Paul x New Balance 550 "Mauve" at this moment in time, but our sources tell us that they'll release within the coming months. Let us know which colourway you prefer, and in related news, Jaden Smith recently teased the MSFTSRep x New Balance sneaker.
