Since its introduction in 2020, the New Balance 550 has undergone numerous transformations, showcasing a harmonious blend of various materials and color schemes in both regular and collaborative releases.

As we step into the new year, New Balance aims to infuse a touch of nostalgia by incorporating sleek patent leather into its latest offerings.

In 2024, the Boston brand ushers in a fresh era for the 550 with the introduction of three patent leather color options. This brings a touch of luxury and sophistication to the beloved lifestyle sneaker. Departing from their usual style, the brand usually incorporates leather and suede materials, often drawing inspiration from the vintage designs curated by Aimé Leon Dore.

The entire collection features patent leather on the tip, quarter panels, heel, and the iconic N logo, while the base is made of regular leather to ensure flexibility and comfort that patent leather may lack.

There are three color options that will be released in the near future: a combination of blue shades that are perfect for UNC fans, as well as two contrasting black and white designs that cater to the popular demand for "Panda" style color-blocking.

Although New Balance has not announced a specific release date, fans can anticipate the arrival of their 2024 collection on store shelves in the near future, catering to a loyal customer base of 550 individuals.
