Whether you’re a sneaker snob or you just can’t get enough of your favorite celebrity singers, there’s something out there for for everyone. Without further delay, here are the collabs we can’t get enough of:
Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002 “Peace Be The Journey”
Versace Vice President of Sneakers and Men’s Footwear, Salehe Bembury, collaborated with New Balance to create a sneaker that dropped October 23rd for $150. Made with New Balance’s 2002 sneaker body, the shoe is titled “Peace Be The Journey,” and is modeled by none other than John Mayer.
Bembury re-envisions this nostalgic New Balance sneaker by rendering it in a desert orange and adding pastel blue, brick-ish reds, and yellow accents to the body. Creating an intriguing shoe-wear design is nothing new to Bembury, who outside of Versace and this collaboration has worked with other fan-favorite brands like Yeezy. The shoe is sure to be a hit with sneaker-heads everywhere, so get it while you can.

Justin Beiber’s Drew House x Crocs
“Yummy” singer Justin Beiber and fellow performers Bad Bunny and Post Malone partnered with Crocs to create a limited edition shoe for Beiber’s streetwear brand, Drew House. The shoe, a Croc Classic Clog, comes in the singer’s signature shade of yellow and is bedazzled with eight speciality charms, called Jibbitz. The cartoon-like charms include suns and lollipops with the Drew House logo and rainbow block lettering that spells out “DREW.”
The Drew House x Crocs collaboration dropped on the 13th of October and nearly crashed both company’s sites, selling out in 90 minutes. The rubber shoes were originally priced at $55 a pair, but topped $200 on resale sites after selling out on the drop day. They are currently reselling on StockX for roughly $70, and are expected to climb in the coming weeks. All the more reason to get them now if you’re currently on the fence.

Reebok x Cardi B Club C Cardi
“WAP” singer Cardi B collaborated with Reebok to create a pair of sneakers called “Club C” earlier this month for the singer’s birthday. The limited-edition collection launched October 12th at Cardi B’s birthday party, revealing both a women’s sneaker (priced at $100) and children’s shoe (priced at $50).
The two footwear models are nearly identical, with neutral tones running throughout the shoe. Both models are currently sold out. The children’s sneaker hung around for a week or so, but the women’s shoes sold out almost immediately upon release. If you were unable to get Cardi B’s footwear collaboration with Reebok, then don’t fret—the sneakers are expected to re-release November 13th. So from the top, make it drop *again,* and save the date on your calendar.
