The New Balance 550 Harkens Its Basketball Roots With A “Vintage Indigo” Offering

Following a quick hiatus from its time in the spotlight, the New Balance 550 is returning in vintage-hued propositions harkening its 1989 birth year and subsequent on-court composition iconized throughout the 90’s.

Exploring a color palette eerily reminiscent to the UNC Tarheels, aged beige hues envelop the dominant premium leather consturction of the upper, administering hits of dark navy at its tongue’s trim and lining of the perforated quarter overlay. Furthering its connection to the game, pebble grain leathers are pulled from the exterior of a basketball to outfit the muted University Blue “N” logo, accented by a “Vintage Indigo” lining. The latter combination extends across various branding efforts including the forefoot’s 550 branding alongside both the tongue and heel counter’s logo.

Finished with a “Sail” treated midsole coupled with the consistent navy shade, enjoy official images of the New Balance 550 “Vintage Indigo” while we await the pair’s release on December 14th at newbalance.com.

In other news, the Nike Dunk Low “St. Johns is set to return in 2023.
