The New Balance 850 is on top of the world right now. Reintroduced into the brand’s arsenal last year, the vintage has become a staple on their release calendar, returning again this month with new teal-based colorways for Summer.

The New Balance 850 isn’t just any other silhouette from the Boston brand’s archives. Originally released in 1996, the ML850 was New Balance’s first big leap into more modern product for a much younger audience. The key feature of the silhouette is the removal of the famous oversized “N” logo that covered every single New Balance shoe at the time. Instead, the brand opted for a much more subtle NB script on both the tongue and heel. Combined with the 850’s sleek and wavy overlays, this made for a much more eye-catching design than anything New Balance had been working on at the time. This week, the retro runner returned in two new colorways, just in time for Summer. The first begins with a teal-toned mesh base layer, before being reinforced by several layers of tan overlays, along with a tan inner lining and navy blue New Balance detailing. The second colorway is even brighter, featuring a purple mesh base before mixing in overlays in white and black and adding splashes of green, blue, and red to complete the look.


New Balance’s latest colorway of the fan-favorite retro 850 release earlier this week on June 1st, 2020. The two bright new colorways for Spring and Summer are currently available directly from New Balance’s website with the usual price tag of $100.
