The New Balance 550 has become a fan-favorite, likely due to the Aimé Leon Dore collaborations that propelled the sneaker into stardom. While most pairs have received a two or three tone upper, this upcoming 550 looks to break the trend with a multi-color pallet.
This iteration of the 550 features an upper like many of its predecessors, constructed in white leathers that embody retro hoops silhouettes. Where it differs however, is in the various other colors that are seen along the heel. Green, navy, yellow, and red touches are seen there, along with a red “N” branding and yellow “550” branding. The same color pallet appears on the sole, contrasting the white midsole that features “NB” and “New Balance” logos.
Luckily for New Balance fans, the New Balance 550 “Oak Leaf Green” is available now on newbalance.com for $110. How do you feel about the 550 silhouette and where does it rank among the Boston-based brand’s new silhouettes? Stay tuned to Cult Edge for all of your sneaker news.
