Kentucky’s finest puts his latest album title on the New Balance 550.
Fresh off the release of his second studio album “Come Home The Kids Miss You,” Jack Harlow has teased us with first images of his long awaited New Balance collaboration. Gifting pairs to his crew, the Kentucky rapper draws inspiration from Louisville and Kentucky sports teams on the Jack Harlow x New Balance 550 “Come Home The Kids Miss You” Pack.
Harlow’s take on the silhouette remains true to the standard New Balance 550, utilizing an all-leather build across the upper. For both colorways, a majority white leather covers the front half of the sneaker, though the medial side places an aged look on the New Balance “N” logo. Up on the collar and heel, the “Kentucky” pair features a blue perforated leather with black overlays splitting the two while the “Louisville” offering replaces this color with red and black. Jack’s latest album title, “Come Home The Kids Miss You,” overtakes the heel on the left pair while the right keeps the standard NB logo. The midsole gets an aged treatment with its New Balance text appearing in the same shade, while the grey non-marking rubber outsole completes the rapper's design.
While the sneaker gets Jack’s touch, the packaging also receives an upgrade. Taking on the shape of a pennant, “Home Team” text is placed on top while the album's title and “Welcome Home - Your Friends At New Balance” is seen on the sides. Currently, it’s unknown if this packaging is strictly for F&F or intended for the general public.
The Jack Harlow x New Balance 550 Come Home The Kids Miss You in the Kentucky and Louisville colorways are set to release in 2022 through New Balance and select NB retailers online and in-store. As of now, sizing and pricing information is unavailable. To stay up to date on the latest from Jack Harlow and New Balance,
