The New Balance 550 steps out in a premium outfit.
Even though 2023 has only just begun, we've already seen quite a few coveted colorways get announced for New Balance's 550. From the "Rain Cloud" to the "Wheat," each pair that gets announced is more sought-after than the next, and the same can certainly be said about the upcoming New Balance 550 "Suede" Pack. One of the latest collections to feature the Boston-based brand's ever-popular basketball shoe, if you're a fan of premium vintage kicks then you're going to want to pay attention to this regal range.
Arriving in three distinct color combinations including "Team Red," "Team Royal," and "Concrete," this pack takes on one New Balance's '80s models that's currently more popular than ever. Outfitted in supple suede throughout, luxe leather and canvas accents make their way to the "N" logo and heel for an extra opulent look and feel. Crisp white laces tie everything together, and an old school basketball graphic adorns the tongue as a nod to the shoe's retro roots. Underfoot, you'll find a white and gray midsole that has been engineered to dominate the hardcourt, and each pair is finished off with subtle "550" branding across the lateral panel.
The New Balance 550 Suede Pack is scheduled to release in Spring 2023 in men's sizes. Retail is set at $110 each, and it'll be available via New Balance and select retailers online and in physical locations.
