KLUTCH Sports founder and one of, if not the most influential agent in sports Rich Paul has typically has used his savvy to land sneaker deals for his numerous clients, but this time he has teamed up with New Balance for a footwear and apparel collection featuring the New Balance 550.
The sneaker uses a cream base with navy, baby blue, and cream accents throughout. The sneaker also features more perforations on the upper and pebbled leather accenting, taking inspiration from a basketball. Co-branding of Paul and NB is seen on the tongue tag with the N logo seen in cream with a navy border. The rubber midsole comes in cream as well with the outsole featured in navy and baby blue.
“Growing up, we always had an affinity for fashion but had very limited resources to express ourselves, and few examples of what success could look like off the court,” said Paul. “When New Balance approached me about a collaboration, more than anything, I wanted to create something to inspire and empower young people coming up behind us – for boys and girls with creativity, passion and fearless determination to stay true to themselves.”
The Rich Paul x New Balance 550 is set to drop on December 10th via newbalance.com and KLUTCHShop.com for $140 with accompanying apparel as well. Check out the official photos below and for all the latest sneaker drop dates, check out our Sneaker Release Dates page.
