The NB 550 is currently experiencing a veritable comeback. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an old or new schooler, a real sneakerhead or a classy Instagram fashionista. Everyone wants to buy the coveted retro silhouette of the New Balance 550 right now.
Anyone who has wanted a New Balance 550 for a long time currently has a choice between different colourways at various stores and retailers. On this overview you will find the latest and already released styles and colors:
At the latest after the successful collaborations with Aime Leon Dore, it has become clear that the Retro of the New Balance 550 is certainly one of the winners of the year. Whether Team Red or in classic royal blue, the model is currently flying off the shelves and is hard to come by. Why this is so is actually logical: the model simply conveys real vibes and fits every streetwear outfit.
As we are used to from the American brand, the 550 also runs a little larger than we are used to from a normal fit. So you can go down half a size, if you manage to find your size at all. Most of the time it’s not that easy. For comparison: while the 550 runs a little smaller, the New Balance 2002r is absolutely true to size.
The model is usually available in all privately run stores like Overkill, 43einhalb or asphaltgold. However, the number of pieces in the stores is usually quite small and therefore quickly sold out; you should have more luck with the big retailers like Snipes or Foot Locker.
