Lakers fans may not have much to cheer about in the basketball world right now, but on sneaker end, things are looking golden. Nike and the Kobe Bryant estate, after announcing the renewal of their partnership, just released the Kobe 6 “Mambacita” on what would have been Gigi Bryant’s Sweet 16 birthday, and adidas is following up with a re-issue of the Crazy 97 that Kobe wore during the 1997 NBA Dunk Contest. Now, New Balance is jumping into the fold with a duet of New Balance 550s that emanate the classic gold and deep purple.

Although there is no official affiliation between the Lakers and these New Balance 550 colorways, it’s hard not too make that connection. After all, one of the brand’s most prominent endorsers was a Laker (James Worthy), so these could be a loose tribute to that partnership that lasted throughout the 80s dynasty era.

Two options are set to release later this year; both feature a white leather base, but with varying color packages – one more “Home” driven with a mix of yellow and golden tones, and a second that centers on a indigo purple hue. Both have that clear-cut Los Angeles look to them, so we already know the West Coast will be shooting for these the moment they become available.

A release date for these New Balance 550s is unknown, so get a look at official images below we’ll update you when we have more info.
