Salehe Bembury’s name has made headlines over and over again this year. From being named as Crocs’ Creative Director of “Pollex Pod” to working with the likes of Moncler, the American designer has had quite the year thus far. Adding on to his long list of accolades is a reunion with New Balance, this time on the popular 1906R model.

During Paris Fashion Week, Bembury offered a first look at his upcoming collaboration with the Boston-based brand. Sporting a fiery gradient accent across the upper, this latest offering is certainly poised to be a hot release—figuratively and literally. Metallic silver accents appear on the sneaker’s overlays and midsole to round off the design.

It’s still early days for the Salehe Bembury x New Balance 1906R, but if you’re as excited as we are, expect more news about this exciting collaboration in the coming weeks.
