Salehe Bembury surely has a lot on his plate with all the demands that come with the role of Senior Director of Sneakers and Men’s Footwear at Versace, and yet the creative is making way for a joint effort with New Balance. Though Bembury’s Instagram reveal consisted only of co-branded text on washed-out denim, his Instagram Story showcased the designer strolling around New Balance HQ in a pair of PRJ 3.0 sneakers.
