Drawing inspiration from a legendary era of basketball, the New Balance 550 offers a sleek take on 80's designs.
A minimalist silhouette featuring the famous bold "N" logo that fuses basketball tradition and style.
Originally released in June 2021, the New Balance 550 'White Team Forest Green' has been back on the shelves since January 2023.
Release dates have been more chaotic with widely scattered drops first in the UK and then more recently in Europe and the US.
When first released, the pair was a quick success. The 550 was the focus of attention especially after the collaborations with Aime Leon Dore in 2020.
In addition, this rather dressy colorway has clearly seduced many fans of the brand.
The demand being greater than the offer at the time, the New Balance 550 'White Team Forest Green' went up on the marketplaces to more than 350€ in April 2022. (Data via Stockx)
This edition features a white leather upper characteristic of the bball pairs of the era and a grayish suede toe.
The pair is contrasted with touches of a stylish dark green on the branding elements, outsole and elements at the back of the shoe.
If you missed it the first time around, this is your chance to get it at retail or under retail.
As a reminder, the New Balance 550 fits true to size. You can take your usual size for these shoes.
There are only a few sizes left online though. Check our full release page.
