Update (7/3/23): Official images have been loaded by New Balance
It's not often that someone outside of athletes, entertainers, or designers is given the opportunity to collaborate on a sneaker, but when you’re the Ari Gold of basketball, certain doors open for you. Rich Paul is an NBA superagent who represents LeBron James and Anytiny Davies (to name a few) was first afforded a New Balance 550 collab two years ago and now has a sophomore edition on the way.
The Rich Paul x New Balance “Forever Yours” is a wearable love letter. Constructed of soft suede and draped in lavender on the upper and outsole give, the shoes a very endearing quality. Burgundy trim around the tongue, and logos are just enough to make the details stand out. An “RP” and rose logo on the heel is the melted wax stamp to seal the letter of love.
The delivery date for the Rich Paul x New Balance “Forever Yours" and any other details about the shoe remain a secret. We'll drop them here and on our Twitter and Instagram as soon as we have more info on Rich Paul’s.
