Another Drop! New Balance 550 in Burgundy and Blue
Release: 7 January 2022

Style Code: BB550WBG

News on this release was originally published on January 4, 2022.

Update February 11, 2022: After the popular New Balance 550 style arrived at select retailers earlier this year in the coveted burgundy and blue colourway, it's now getting a re-up! If you're after a pair and are located in Australia, hit up Up There – who are selling exclusively in-store. You'll want to be quick to make sure you score!

New Balance's 550 had a huge year in 2021, ticking off multiple collaborations with the likes of AURALEE and Aimé Leon Dore, capping it all off in December with an all-time 80s-inspired iteration – in partnership with superstar agent Rich Paul. And then there was the 'Dibiasky', a celebratory 550 which was made with real meteor fragments to commemorate the release of the recent Netflix film, Don't Look Up.

Aside from colabs, last year saw the vintage basketball model released in a handful of college-inspired releases including the 'Varsity Orange' and 'UNC', as well as a stack of other colours like purple, green and black. Now NB are set to launch into 2022 with a fresh colourway – dressed in off white, with hits of burgundy and aqua blue, all atop a cream sole. Given the popularity of each of its predecessors, it's sure to be a sought after style. You can start preparing to cop this 550 as it's due to release soon on January 7 via retailer Foot District. Price is set at $120.

In the mean time, take a look at the upcoming 650R model, which New Balance are resurrecting alongside Aimé Leon Dore.
