Original Story (06/03/22): Salehe Bembury continues to collect sneaker collaborations like Infinity Stones. The footwear designer known for the New Balance 574 YURT, Crocs Pollex Clog, ANTA SB-01 and SB-02, and more, has now unveiled a project with Los Angeles-based footwear brand Brandblack.

Brandblack was founded by footwear industry veteran David Raysse in 2012 and is probably best known for the J Crossover, the signature basketball shoe of ex-NBA star Jamal Crawford. Bembury now helps introduces Brandblack to a new generation of sneakerheads with a new silhouette. The sneaker incorporates Bembury’s playful use of shapes, patterns, and colors, with both colorways previewed dressed in a funky mix of orange, green, and yellow hues. Underfoot, the shoe features Brandblack’s proprietary high-traction Wraptech Vibram rubber sole unit.

Grab a first look at the Salehe Bembury x Brandblack sneaker below. Expect these to drop later this year on beaspunge.com and the Brandblack website. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.

Update (06/09/22): Salehe Bembury has shared campaign imagery and release info for his upcoming BrandBlack collab. Catch the drop on June 23rd at 5pm CEST (10am Chicago time). Subscribe to the Spunge mailing list for updates.
