Without a doubt, one of the key players in New Balance‘s lifestyle footwear division has to be the beloved 550 model.
Following several colourways that were released recently, we now have the “White-Black” and the “Rain Cloud” colourways on the calendar—releasing this weekend.
The “White-Black” version arrives in simple black, white and grey construction that appears similar to that which has been found on other iterations in the past. A grey and black outsole appears underneath, with good grip and bounce, whilst black suede covers the toe cap and heel. Grey TPU panelling can be found on the mudguard, offsetting the white midsole, whilst pretty much the rest of the upper appears in white too. The large bubble ‘N’ logo is outlined in black, highlighting the branding, whilst the tongue shows off the sneaker’s basketball roots.
The “Rain Cloud” version arrives in a crisp white leather base with perforations for breathability and light cream counterparts for pops of contrast, notably the midfoot “N” logo, “550” branding, and tongue and heel brandings. In addition, a grey-coloured panel wraps around the toes. A full-length cushioned midsole unit beneath the feet completes these covetable New Balance trainers.
Look out for the New Balance 550 “White-Black” and the “Rain Cloud” to release on Saturday, 17 September 2022 at:
