New Balance 650

The New Balance 1980s is a basketball/lifestyle model first rolled out by New Balance in the 1980s. Once lost to time, the New Balance 650 received additional life through the work of Aime Leon Dore & founder Teddy Santis. After reviving the New Balance 550 from the brand’s archives, he turned his attention to the high-cut basketball shoe, reviving the line with some remastered details in 2022.

Since that ALD x NB link up, the New Balance 650 has slid seamlessly back into the mix as a mainline NB offering, now offered in plenty of general release colorways that draw attention all the same. 2024 hasn’t bucked that trend any, and new editions roll out on a seasonal basis.

Below you’ll find our latest coverage on the New Balance 650, including release details and official images.
