As you've probably already read in one or the other of our posts, we're big fans of the New Balance 550 silhouette and are therefore very happy that a new colourway has dropped with the New Balance 550 Lilac Chalk Macadamia. This post summarizes all the important information about this drop.
The original New Balance 550 hit the market in 1989 and made its mark on basketball courts across the country. After the first edition, the 550 was filed in the archives before being reintroduced in a limited edition in late 2020. It returned to the regular range in 2021 and quickly became a global fashion favourite. The 550's streamlined, low-top silhouette is a clean take on the rugged late '80s design, while the dependable suede and leather upper is a classic look for any era.
In terms of design, the sneaker has a vintage vibe. The upper is completely dressed in pink suede, which underlines this vintage style. A white mesh construction was only chosen around the ankle collar and the iconic N logo also shines in white. Two color tones were chosen for the sole, which flow into each other. The midsole is the same white as the elements previously described, fading into beige.
