One of the cleanest 550s out there.
There's no debating the fact that New Balance's 550 is currently one of the most popular pairs out there. First introduced back in the '80s during the height of the basketball craze, the Boston-based brand's low-top silhouette was brought back at the end of 2020, and things haven't been the same since. Whether you're a hardcore 550 collector or you're searching for your very first pair, the brand new New Balance 550 "Off White Pine Green" definitely deserves a spot in your rotation, so keep on reading to find out everything that we know so far.
Outfitted in clean off white leather from heel to toe, perforations across the sidewalls give it that vintage aesthetic that we all know and love. The legendary "N" logo is finely inlaid in a lush pine green leather, and this is complemented by suede detailing that wraps around the collar. An old school basketball graphic makes its way to the tongue tag, going back to the 550's retro roots, and all of this sits on top of a crisp midsole that's as comfortable as it gets.
The New Balance 550 Off White Pine Green is set to release sometime in 2023 in men's sizes for $120. Expected to drop at New Balance and select retailers both online and in physical locations, you definitely don't want to miss out on this.
