The Women’s New Balance 550 “Linen” Lands In Stores Soon

The New Balance 550 keeps surfacing in new styles, picking up different materials, design themes, and color blocking patterns across a huge selection of widely available pairs. This new “Linen” pair for women doesn’t introduce anything entirely new, but inverses parts of the shoe’s traditional material arrangement for a fresh look.

Grey suede floods the base, visible on the toe box, “N” logo, and spine whereas it’s most commonly seen on the panels that rest above, particularly towards the forefoot. The shoe’s overlays, meanwhile, are all cut from leather and take the titular “Linen” hue, adding slight contrast. A conservative use of black highlights the branding on the quarter, tongue, and heel, complete underfoot with a white midsole atop grey tread.

No release date has been set at the time of this writing, but pairs should hit retailers soon for $120. Enjoy official images below and hit our Sneaker Release Dates page for a full preview of upcoming New Balance 550 drops.
