The New Balance 550 Scores With a Trio of Killer ColourwaysRelease: 6 November 2021
The latest triple-threat boasts all the heritage design DNA of its 1989 progenitor, with plenty of archival integrity drawn upon in this near one-to-one remake. Showcasing the tidy design restraint which has become synonymous with the NB brand – the mossy green, crimson red and deep blue renditions are destined to impress both on and off the court.
With a mighty clean solid-white leather base, each pair is bordered by black toe bumpers, ankle collars and heel clips. Like recent releases, perforated mudguard panels, nylon rear quarters and tongues are utilised, matched with accents and branded panels which are shaded in those reliable primary colours.
Revived after a 30-year-long dormancy, the NB550 was never reproduced after its initial run, but the silhouette is well and truly back since being called up from the bench in 2020. Ready to ball-out? Look for this fresh NB550 drop to arrive at New Balance on November 6. The retail price is $180.
