When he’s not getting into drama regarding Ray J’s sister or hanging out with some of his idols-turned-peers, Jack Harlow is seemingly designing pairs of the New Balance 550.
Recently, the 24-year-old revealed two colorways of the “en vogue” silhouette with “Come Home The Kids Miss You” text on the heel, nodding to the title of his second studio album. The sneakers, which follow a “Louisville versus Kentucky” color combination, don’t deviate much from New Balance‘s own offerings: high-quality smooth and perforated leather make up the entirety of the shoes’ uppers, with simple red or blue contrasting landing sparsely throughout the top-half. Black also enters the mix across the shoe, with sole units opting for an “aged” look that’s been popularized by Aimé Leon Dore. Lastly, each of the “Come Home The Kids Miss You” 550s is packaged in a pennant-shaped box, further tying the special project to the Louisville and Kentucky sports rivalry.
Check out an early look at the pairs ahead, as you wait for potential NewBalance.com release details.
