Earlier this year, COMME des GARÇONS HOMME’s latest collaboration with New Balance was revealed. Landing on the 550, this release comes as a follow up to previous launches from the duo, including on the CT300 and 57/40.

In fitting fashion for both brands, each colorway offers a simple yet refined look with grayscale color schemes of black and white. Both are constructed of uppers that blend a primarily leather base with mesh and synthetic detailing while resting atop a stitched rubber sole unit. Typical New Balance branding including the “550” text and “N” logo appears with CdGH co-branding at the heel and sockliner. Each colorway’s respective accent color lands on the branding elements, linework and outsole, providing contrast to both street-ready looks.

For those looking to grab a pair, both colorways of the COMME des GARÇONS HOMME x New Balance 550 can be purchased now in a limited size run via Dover Street Market at a price of $265 USD.
