The New Balance 550 Sharpens This Women’s Exclusive Colorway With A Squeeze Of Lime

feature image

Due in part to Aime Leon Dore’s influence, the New Balance 550 has had a chokehold on sneaker culture for quite a while. And while 2022 saw many swap out their NBs in favor of several other styles of footwear — ASICS GEL-KAYANO 14s, OUR LEGACY Camion Boots, G.H. Bass Penny Loafers, etc. — the basketball oxford has not yet lost its relevance. 2023 will see even more colorways hit the shelves, from USA-inspired offerings to women’s exclusives the likes of this Sandstone-dressed pair.

Unlike many of the model’s prior appearances, this upcoming New Balance 550 is devoid of any leather. Instead, the shoe is mainly constructed of mesh, canvas, and suede, all clad in a variety of neutral tones. But beyond these white and tan-colored panels, pops of “Turtledove” — which is best described as a bright, neon green — are applied to the shoe’s accents, namely the outsole and trim.

Enjoy an official look at this New Balance 550 right here. Sizes are likely to hit NewBalance.com as well as select retailers within the next few months.
