The 550 has been New Balance’s go-to model over the last four years. Even as they continue to revive older silhouettes, the retro basketball shoe has remained a regular weapon in their arsenal, adding new styles like this “Olivine” pair for Summer 2024.

New colorways of New Balance’s 550 have been a fixture of their release calendar for the past few years. Every month, new styes with fresh color palettes and material choices emerge, bringing plenty of options for the model’s many fans. This week, we got an early look at a new “Olivine” pair coming this Summer, which adds shaggy suede outer layers to the sneaker. The pair begins with a light olive green mesh base layer, adding its suede pieces in a medium grey shade. The leather mid layers, laces, and ‘N’ logos add an accent of Linen white to complete the look.


New Balance’s latest colorway of the 550 has not been announced for release yet, but is expected to arrive sometime in early Summer 2024. Dressed in an “Olivine” green with grey suede and linen white accents, pairs will be available from the brand’s website and select retailers for the usual $120. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more sneaker release news.
