The New Balance 550 Gets the Triple Black Treatment

The 550 goes emo — and we’re here for it.

With all eyes on the New Balance 550 silhouette, it was only a matter of time before the model entered stealth mode with a sleek black-on-black colorway.

Following recently restocked “UNC” and “Varsity Orange” models, the archival silhouette returns in a monochromatic iteration that aligns perfectly with the resurgence of “emo” fashion among Gen Z.

The New Balance 550 “Black” comes with a full leather construction with perforated overlays landing on the mudguards. The shoe’s tongue features a different textile, opting for a breathable mesh. “550” branding pops in a charcoal gray, a color that continues on to the midsole. “New Balance” hits on the tongue and heel complete the design.

Shop the New Balance 550 “Black” at retailers like Up There for $132 USD.

In other news, the BAPE ROAD STA returns in two new colorways.
