Salehe Bembury's Upcoming New Balance 1906R Collection Drops This Week
“Heat Be Hot” is landing sooner than you think.
Salehe Bembury is back with another striking New Balance collaboration, this time trying his technicolor hand on a pair of 1906R sneakers. First teased at Milan Fashion Week, Bembury was spotted debuting the upcoming release as an avid fashion week goer, and it’s not the first time we’ve seen new collabs make an appearance in this way. Previously, Bembury’s Crocs Pollex Slide colorways have made a similar debut, alongside the recent 990V2.
The new “Heat Be Hot” collection arrives in two silhouettes, the first combining a fiery orange gradient hue with a breathable mesh silver build. The second boasts a red, blue and purple color palette, atop a red mesh upper complete with vibrant blue accents across its overlays. Elsewhere, hits of purple highlight the mesh tongue and rubber outsole.
Following the teaser, it appears an official release date has been confirmed. The new kicks are slated for release on January 11 via Spunge, landing at 12 pm EST.
