The New Balance BB550, which was revived thanks to Aime Leon Dore not too long back, was just confirmed to be seeing a GR line-up, one inclusive of multiple retro-inspired schemes. And among said collection, the brand will be honoring adjacent basketball icons — namely the Air Jordan 1 “Shadow.”

Across its premium construction, the panels dress in two main shades. The side profile, with its rounded “N” logo, sees to the darker of the two, while hits of grey wrap underneath at the mesh heel tab, the toe box forward, and the trims of the tooling. Branding follows suit in color — or, rather, the lack thereof — placed at the helm of a frame brandished with polished black leathers and matching lace units.

Grab a detailed look at this homage right here and expect a release to hit NewBalance.com likely within the coming months.

In other news, the Air Jordan 1 Black/Gold will be releasing tomorrow, Cyber Monday.
