Continuing to stray away from sporting-fueled colorways, New Balance is now readying a new lifestyle take on the New Balance 550. Expected to arrive in the coming months, the New Balance 550 “Hemp” sees the popular shoe reimagined with a full textile construction.
Ditching the usual leather tooling, the New Balance 550 “Hemp” feature textile hemp uppers paired with mesh tongues and matching suede elements. Branding comes in the form of the usual “N” motifs at the midfoot, “550” embroidery, tongue tags, “NB” logos at the rear, and printed insoles. Elevating the shoe are branding marked cream-colored sole units with matching tonal stitching.
Priced at $120 USD, the New Balance 550 “Hemp” is now set to release in the coming weeks via New Balance and at select retailers.
For more footwear news, rumors of a Carhartt x Nike SB collaboration have surfaced.
