New Balance will start 2022 off strong by giving the classic 550 a new look.

The Spanish sneaker boutique Foot District announced on its launch calendar that the Boston-based sportswear brand’s classic basketball-turned-lifestyle sneaker will arrive in a new burgundy and blue colorway before week’s end.

The latest look features a predominantly white leather upper and is paired with burgundy accents on the ankle collar and on the sock liner. The shoe’s standout detail is the subtle light blue accents decorating the “N” branding on the sides, the tongue tag as well as the “550” embroidery at the forefoot. Rounding out the look is a sail-colored midsole and a burgundy rubber outsole.

Additionally, New Balance revealed on its sneaker release calendar that the “Team Carolina,” “Varsity Orange,” and “Black” iterations of the low-top basketball shoe will be released on Jan. 12 at Newbalance.com for $110 each.

The New Balance 550 in the burgundy and light blue colorway will launch this Friday at Footdistrict.com and at select New Balance retailers for a retail price of $120.
