The New Balance 550 has become one of the brand’s staples, largely due to the influence of Aimé Leon Dore. If you weren’t able to strike on the collaborative pairs, a new 550 influenced by the famous Navy and Maize is set to release to the public.
From first glance, the color pallet of the 550 easily takes from the university’s signature colors. Navy leather uppers are accented by hits of yellow, which appear all alongside the “550” numbering and the heel. Below, a white midsole seperates the upper from the two-toned outsole.
This New Balance 550 is currently available in Asia through select retailers for ¥14,300 / $132. Perhaps the sneaker will see a global release, and we’ll keep you updated if it does. Until then, be sure to keep it locked to Nice Kicks for all of your sneaker information.
