Last week saw the release of COMME des GARÇONS HOMME’s latest project with New Balance, a simple take on the New Balance 550 in two colorways. Arriving in “White with Black” and “Black with White” color schemes, this release came in at a whopping $265 USD while offering looks that many noted New Balance to have affordable alternatives to. Now, following the collaboration selling out at various stockists, New Balance has ushered in a nearly identical pair, sans the CdGH branding.
Arriving in yet another grayscale makeover, the New Balance 550 in “Black with White” joins a bevy of colorways launching at the start of November. Its synthetic leather upper favors a nearly all-black look while white sneaks in at the branding elements and collar. Standard to the fan-favorite sneaker, a stitched midsole joins a rubber outsole in white and black respectively.
Release for the New Balance 550 “Black with White” is scheduled for November 1 at a price of $110 USD via New Balance and select retailers worldwide.
Check out the pair above and for more footwear news, New Balance has outfitted the New Balance 2002R in another aged colorway that features pre-worn styling.
