Super-agent Rich Paul. You may know him as the Klutch Sports Group founder who represents the likes of LeBron James and Chris Paul, or you may know him as Adele’s boyfriend. Either way, the sneakerhead community will soon know him as the guy with his own New Balance 550.

The partnership between Rich Paul and New Balance makes sense, as Paul was the one who orchestrated Darius Bazley’s internship with the footwear company in 2018. In lieu of more traditional paths to the NBA like the one-and-done college route or joining the G League, Bazley signed with New Balance in a first-of-its-kind deal where he interned with the company for three months and earned $1 million, with the potential to earn up to $14 million once drafted into the NBA. The Bazley partnership helped launch New Balance’s foray back into the basketball footwear category.

The Rich Paul x New Balance 550 oozes with vintage basketball aesthetic. It comes dressed primarily in off-white smooth and perforated leather with cream N logos and tongue tag graphics for a slightly aged look. Additionally, basketball-textured navy leather dresses the ankle collar area, matching the lip of the tongue, insoles. These hits combine with the sky blue on the outsole to create a UNC-themed color scheme. The shoe comes in a specially branded box dressed in creamy yellow for added vintage vibes.

Wrong. They’ve been k*lling collabs and grew organically by just having great designs. They haven’t even needed big names, they usually collab with smaller streetwear designers

We got a few New balance DC collabs that have came out over the years.. we typically going for the 990, 992 & 993.







Lets call the Rich Pauls the “Senior Citizen 5000s”.

Nah these ain't it. The model/style is trash but they coulda made it work with this color scheme and a different model. They shoulda just went with the high top 740s for these. Or some other number

I got those in green/off white and the regular 550's in purple/white I like both a lot, a classic silhouette. A few months ago Aime also had a pre-order for the 550 high top collab that there doing that's supposed to be dropping sometime next year.

I respect the hustle no question but why are agents getting shoe deals or a colab.
