In 2021, we collaborated with New Balance for the ‘College Pack’. For this basketball-inspired capsule, we reimagined two of New Balance’s staple designs: the court-ready 550 and the track icon 574. Now, due to limited stock, we know that some of you missed out on these – so we are bringing back the 550 once again for a draw.
The 550 is one of the most eye-catching out of the vast New Balance archive; first released in 1989, the model was originally a basketball silhouette. One of our favourite NB designs, we reimagined the design with a crisp colourway, ready for your summer rotation. Our exclusive 550 still radiates ‘80s b-ball nostalgia, arriving with mesh detailing, plus smooth and perforated leather on the upper.
While white dominates the trainer, hits of bold orange stand out the most, most notably on the signature ‘N’ logos and 550 branding. To balance out the colours, the laces and midsole are coated in cream, while the outsole continues the grey and orange tones. To sign things off, the shoe features further tonal branding on the midsole, plus there is a large NB-branded patch on the tongue.
The New Balance 550 – ?exclusive (re-release) draw opens 24.09.22 and closes 29.09.22. This release comes in men’s and women’s sizes and is priced at £110.
