The New Balance 550 has been one of the more popular silhouettes on the sneaker market for over two years after spending the majority of thirty-one years in the vault. As the New England institution continues to work out the model’s release cycle, it’s outfitting Steven Smith’s design in several compelling ensembles, with the latest being a “Reflection,” “Vintage Teal,” and “Dawn Glow” outfit exclusive to women.
As with other propositions from New Balance, the newly-released pair features premium suede and leather across its upper, bringing a lifestyle touch to the decades-old performance basketball offering. The majority of the sneaker’s top-half indulges in a soft grey tone, while contrasting green and yellow accents animate vamp areas, profile logos, tongue labels, and components around the heel. Underfoot, the story opts for a much more subdued tale, as sole units favor varying off white hues, allowing for the upper to revel in the spotlight.
Enjoy detailed product images of the shoes ahead, courtesy of Packer Shoes, and find pairs available right now at the New Jersey-based shop’s webstore for $120 USD.
