I honestly cannot figure out how Salehe Bembury has time to do anything other than work.
If he’s not busy designing another round of Pollex Clogs for Crocs or creating dope sneakers with Brandblack, he's dropping more of those whistling New Balance 574s or hanging out with Donatella Versace in Milan. The guy should really come up for air, you know.
That being said, his latest NB collaboration — which lands online on December 8, 2022 — might just be his best yet (so maybe he can keeping holding his breath for now).
Bembury – who was previously the VP of sneakers and men’s footwear at Versace – is clearly a fan of the brand, having also dropped a collection of apparel alongside NB last year as a part of his “Universal Communication” YURT project.
All this in less than two years is impressive, not least with Bembury’s Crocs collaborations being dished out at similar speed, alongside a myriad of other collaborative projects.
Maybe when these finally do land on December 8 (via beaspunge.com) and the last of his Pollex Clogs have been copped and resold, Bembury can sit down and take a well-deserved rest. You deserve it, champ!
