Once overlooked by the masses, the New Balance 550 has found new life thanks to a true-to-original reissue by Aimé Leon Dore at the start of 2020. Exploring a vast amount of color blockings and unassuming concoctions, the Basketball Oxford now prepares a soothing ocean-tinted composition.
Dominated by crisp white leather panels, the silhouette looks to a contrasting array of navy blues lining the mid-foot N and perforated overlay before completely filling the ankle collar’s overlay. A lightened greyscale pairing ascertains the suede and rubber heel clip for a quick departure from the lightened palette and further treats the middle-most section of the split tread underfoot. Closing out the summer-ready offering, a complimentary inclusion of mint decks out the opposing ends of the outsole before anchoring the tongue tabs branding.
Enjoy a detailed look at the New Balance 550 “Navy/Mint” below while we await the pair’s expected release in the coming weeks.
