Rich Paul is an American sports agent based in Cleveland, Ohio. He founded Klutch Sports Group which represents a number of prominent NBA players, such as LeBron James and Chris Paul, in addition to NFL players in more recent years.
The super-agent has now teamed up with New Balance to release his own New Balance 550 collaboration. This offering of the shoe features an Off-White base constructed in a mix of smooth and perforated leather with Cream “N” logos and tongue tag graphics giving off vintage vibes. Additional details includes Navy and Sky Blue contrasting accents that extend onto the insoles and rubber outsole. Two set of extra laces housed in a special co-branded box completes the design.
Style Code: BB550RP1
Release Date: December 10, 2021
“Growing up, we always had an affinity for fashion but had very limited resources to express ourselves, and few examples of what success could look like off the court,” said Paul. “When New Balance approached me about a collaboration, more than anything, I wanted to create something to inspire and empower young people coming up behind us – for boys and girls with creativity, passion and fearless determination to stay true to themselves.”
