NB 550 in 3 new colors
Earlier this year, the NB 550 basketball silhouette was brought out of the archives and highlighted by the famous New York streetwear brand Aimé Leon Dore (articles available on this site). Today, the equipment manufacturer New Balance presents us with this silhouette in 3 new color options.
Back in November 2020, the Boston-based sportswear brand had announced the return of the NB 550, with a line-up that includes at least 18 iterations for the year 2021.
After the re-release of OG colorways, this sneaker is now available in White/Black, White/Bordeaux and White/Varsity Gold.
All 3 versions consist of a white leather upper, featuring perforations on the side panels, with a light grey suede mudguard. The distinctive black, burgundy or yellow colorway is carried through to other elements such as the iconic side N logo, branding details, collar, tongue tag, heel clip and outsole. An inner lining and white laces complete the look. The whole is based on a white midsole.
The New Balance 550 White/Black, White/Bordeaux and White/Varsity Gold will be released on May 7, 2021, at select retailers and on newbalance.com for a suggested retail price of 120$ per iteration.
