New Balance's retro basketball trainers were brought back from the archives in 2020 by Teddy Santis, head of NYC-based fashion and lifestyle retailer Aimé Leon Dore. Since then, the New Balance 550 has garnered new found popularity in the sneaker world. This rendition is nothing far from the norm when it comes to construction. The uppers are predominantly crafted with a blend of perforated leather for optimal airflow, this is coated in a base white tone. The colour balance is elevated with hits red, grey and black marking the collars, tongue, and other less distinct areas. Across the sides, New Balance's N logo appears in green, joined with an off-white rubber outsole. The pair is rounded off with a midsole underfoot providing cushioning and comfort that you need on and off the court.
