As you've probably already read in one or the other of our articles, we are big fans of the New Balance 550 silhouette and are therefore very happy that a new colorway has been dropped with the New Balance 550 Pistons. You can find all relevant information about the drop of the NB 550 in this article.
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.
A nod to the early 1989 composition, a crisp white base layer extends over the model's smooth leather upper, tongue construction and laces. Echoing the Motor City's three tones, the flag's bright red stars land along the tongue and tongue, “N” logo on the midfoot, and 550 branding placed alongside. The blue is concentrated along the heel and ankle. The tread then picks up the blue and red tones again and combines them with the white of the midsole.
