New Balance’s 550 took a backseat last year, as the brand introduced new and retro models into their catalog. This week, a three-piece “Patent Leather” pack for the model has emerged, coming soon.

New Balance spent 2023 introducing a handful of fresh silhouettes to their lineup, dropping new versions of the 1906, releasing the retro 610, and debuting brand new models like the WRPD Runner. Through all of this, the 550 has remained present on their release calendar, quielty dropping in new colorways each season. This week, a new pack of styles has emerged, covering the silhouette in patent leather panels. The base layers are still constructed from standard leather, but the mudguard and heel pieces have an added shine for a new look. Three colorways will be available, the first in white with light and dark shades of blue. The second two are more simple, coming in either white or black with the opposing shade as an accent tone.

Featuring blue, white, and black colorways all clad in patent leather, pairs will be available from the NB website and select retailers for $120.
