80s-Inspired Basketball Sneakers

size? Restocks the Iconic New Balance College Pack of 550s

— September 27, 2022 — Lifestyle
Retailer size? recently worked in collaboration with New Balance to design the College pack of 550 sneaker models along with some 574s as well. This drew inspiration from the 80s, spotlighting the basketball culture during the era. This time around, size? restocks the collection for those who may have missed it the first time around.

The court-ready design is made from a blend of mesh and leather in white and detailed with Burnt Ochre colors. Branding can be found at the sides, heel, and the branded tongue tabs. '550' is seen detailing the lateral side of the shoe as another branded touch. Rounding out the design are the creamy tonal midsoles and orange and light grey details at the outsoles.
