United Arrows Get An Exclusive Grey Suede New Balance 550Release: 2 December 2021,
New Balance have blessed the masters of refined menswear at United Arrows with another exclusive sneaker, namely a fresh take on the popular 550! Following up an autumnal 991 from earlier in the year and a low-key 1700 that was released back in 2020, this 550 discards its standard sporty stylings in favour of a more elegant lifestyle build, one that's centred around a grey suede upper.
Besides switching its material composition from leather to suede, this United Arrows-exclusive 550 also reinterprets New Balance's classic palette of grey shades with soft grey on its above-mentioned upper, darker grey around its midsole and outsole and dashes of white to complete the contrast. United Arrows even provides wear instructions for the exclusive style, as their product description notes that it's recommended for wear with denim, chino pants, slacks and 'beautiful bottoms'. Talk about versatility!
If you're looking to add this United Arrows-exclusive New Balance 550 to your end of year sneaker lineup, you can pre-order it via the United Arrows webstore now for a late December delivery. Men's and women's sizes are available.
