Where to Buy the New Balance 550 White/Black
News of this release was first published on November 29, 2021.
Update February 1, 2022: Just last month the New Balance 550 White/Black received a restock via NB! Due to popular demand, they're soon becoming available once again at a couple of retailers, starting from February 4. Check out where to buy them down below. Good luck!
Update January 19, 2022: If you missed out on these 550s, worry not! New Balance are releasing a small restock on January 25.
Over the past year, the New Balance 550 has reached new heights, becoming one of the brand's centrepiece silhouettes and a sought after sneaker for the masses. Following the now-legendary Aimé Leon Dore resurrection and restock, NB has continued to produce the 550 in crispy GR makeups that are easy on the eyes and even easier to style. Two-tone colourways have been a favourite just like this latest Black and White iteration that’s scheduled to release in December.
Think this simple colour combo looks familiar? That’s because a similar joint released earlier this year utilising almost exactly the same colour-blocking. The major difference though is the branding, which doesn’t feature a solid colour and instead opts for a black outlined ’N’ logo. The other alteration has been made to the heel section, which sees black wrapped around the underlay with white overlays, the previous chose the opposite. The rest of the 550 build remains the same with perforated white leather, bulky midsole and specialised tongue branding all in place.
