The New Balance 550 has seen a meteoric rise in popularity since it was first resurrected back in 2020 via an Aimé Leon Dore collaboration. It’s quickly become a staple today and a mainstay within the NB GR arsenal. We’ve been hit with a multitude of colourways and colabs recently, and while still popular, the OG combos with 80s-style colour-blocking still remain the most sought after. Among them are the ‘Team Red’ and ‘Team Royal’ which first hit shelves on December 1 in 2020. Luckily for those who missed out they are both receiving a restock!
Obviously the most popular colourways because they resemble those done by Aimé Leon Dore, the only change between these and the collaborative versions are the branding and stark white midsole (the ALDs feature a pre-yellowed unit). Exuding 80s ball, the whole upper has been decked out in perforated white leather with subtle coloured branding hits and panels. Rounding them out is the custom New Balance basketball tongue tag.
These are already destined to fly out the door! The New Balance 550 ‘Team Red’ and ‘Team Royal’ look to be restocking on February 15 via the NB USA webstore. It’s unclear if a global restock will take place at a later date but we’ll keep you updated!
