Will you be adding these 650s to your collection?
Even though New Balance's 650 may look retro, it's actually an all-new silhouette that's inspired by the 550, which actually is retro. With that said, that hasn't stopped fans of old school sneakers from copping every single colorway under the sun. If you still don't have a pair in your collection, the upcoming New Balance 650 "White Purple" might just be what you've been searching for all this time. Clean and simple, keep reading to find out everything that we know so far.
Boasting a predominantly white leather base that's perfect for the warmer seasons ahead, the perforated details across the lateral and medial sidewalls are taken straight from the aforementioned 550. Elsewhere, the plush mesh collar is dipped in a bold purple palette, and this is complemented by the iconic "N" logo. "650" is finely stitched alongside the bottommost eyelets, and all of this sits on top of a crisp midsole that's as comfortable as it gets.
The New Balance 650 White Purple is set to release overseas on March 1st, 2023. A stateside will drop later in the month. Coming in men's sizes, retail is set at $140. Expected to launch at New Balance and select retailers online and in physical locations worldwide, make sure you keep it locked to Sole Retriever's Twitter and Mobile App for your best chance to cop!
