Drops Date TBA
New Balance is set to take us on a nostalgic journey with its upcoming release, the New Balance 550 "Distressed Pack."
The "Distressed Pack" comprises three colorways, each meticulously designed to exude a pre-worn, aged look. New Balance has expertly incorporated this weathered aesthetic, tapping into the industry's current fascination with vintage-inspired sneakers.
Staying true to the classic color blocking of the 550, each pair boasts a white leather upper with black trim, accompanied by a distinctive accent color. The color options include brown, red, and grey, allowing sneaker enthusiasts to choose their preferred vintage-inspired hue.
However, the attention to detail in achieving the distressed finish sets these sneakers apart. The midfoot N motifs proudly display worn-away paintwork, while cracked suedes on the collar add to the weathered charm. Even the sole units have undergone an aging process, with an aged-washed appearance that perfectly complements the overall aesthetic. To complete the vintage experience, New Balance has equipped these sneakers with leather liners, adding a touch of retro sophistication.
Enjoy a first look at the three pairs from the New Balance 550 "Distressed Pack" below, and stay tuned for more details and release information as we approach 2024.
