The New Balance 550 continues to form an important part of the brand’s roster of products.
Recently, the Steven Smith-designed silhouette emerged in a clean “Granite” and “Quartz Grey” color scheme. Smooth and perforated leather across the upper takes on a cool grey hue. Textile base layers visible around the heel deviate in a slightly lighter off white tone that also appears on sidewall logos. Underfoot, the midsole follow suits, while the old school New Balance traction pattern favors the aforementioned “Granite” touch. All together, the upcoming NB 550 delivers a refreshing spin to an aesthetic widely associated with the North American brand’s footwear.
