size? and New Balance have teamed up on some exciting projects over the years, so it’s no surprise that the U.K. retailer would get the chance to rework some of the brand’s best work. This month, size? is taking on the retro 550 model, coming soon.
New Balance’s retro 550 basketball shoe returned in 2020 with the help of collaborator Aimé Leon Dore, and now, the vintage silhouette is making its way into the hands of other high-profile New Balance collaborators in 2021. Earlier this week, U.K. retailer size? gave an early look at their take on the chunky basketball shoe, which covers the 550 in the store’s signature white and orange tones. The size? New Balance 550 features white leather from heel to toe, with their recognizable orange tone accenting the New Balance ‘N’ logos, 550 branding, inner lining, and the mesh underlays around the heel. The tongue’s New Balance Caterpillar branding also comes in orange, while a tiny size? tag on the sockliner completes the look.
