The New Balance 550 basketball sneaker is back, and if the brand’s latest leaks are any indication, the retro model is here to stay. Take a look at fourteen new colorways of the vintage 550, all expected to drop throughout 2021.

New Balance’s initial in-line colorways of the P550 basketball oxford haven’t even released yet, and already the Boston brand has unveiled a massive lineup of color schemes on the way. After the return of the vintage silhouette late last year thanks to Aimé Leon Dore, the retro basketball model is prepping for a large scale drop, returning to a prominent position in the brand’s active lineup. While we knew the 550 would come back in general-release fashion in 2021, we weren’t quite aware to what extent New Balance would be ready to produce the shoe. Now, we have an early look at a total of fourteen colorways set to drop throughout the year, not including the black & grey pairs we saw early last week. Notable inclusions in the 550 lineup for the new year include green and yellow makeups, basic essentials like all white and team-inspired colorways like white with a single accent color.


New Balance’s plans for a roll-out of the vintage 550 basketball shoe have not yet been revealed, though we are expecting this new batch of colorways to start appearing on shelves in the coming weeks. With over twelve colorways on the horizon, we are likely to see them drop over the course of weeks, or months, from both New Balance and select retailers, likely with a price tag in the $100 range. Check out the official images for a better look at all fourteen color schemes, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
