While many new school sneakerheads would assume that the 550 is a brand new lifestyle silhouette created for 2022, old school sneakerheads know that this model actually released all the way back in the '80s as part of New Balance's basketball shoe offerings. With that said, the popularity of the Air Force 1 and the rise of the Dunk, it should come as to no surprise that b-ball models are making a serious comeback, and colorways like the New Balance 550 "White Blue Teal" are huge reasons why.
From a distance, this 550 gives us Nike Dunk Low "Argon" vibes. With an all-leather construction that's smooth and sleek to the touch, it's predominantly painted in white, while blue and teal tones make their way throughout the upper for a contrast that is sure to turn heads. Other cool features include a matte inlaid "N" logo that adorns the laterals and medials, perforated paneling, a plush mesh collar, and a retro-styled basketball graphic that hits the tongue.
The New Balance 550 White Blue Teal is set to release in 2022. It will be available in men's sizes with retail set at $110. Expected to drop at New Balance and select retailers worldwide, you definitely do not want to miss this colorway.
