New Balance’s approach toward basketball’s current era of near-positionless play has been headlined by the TWO WXY series. Boasting a hybrid construction fit for guards and forwards alike, the mid-top silhouette’s latest colorway draws a direct line to NB ambassador Jamal Murray with a Nuggets-esque ensemble.
Throwing it back to the 80s, the The New Balance 550 "White with Aura explores the same color palette that was attributed to the Nuggets’ classic blue uniforms that bear a rainbow-accented skyline. As such, the upper is split into a two-toned effort as a crisp “Optic White” floods the forefoot and front half of the dual technology midsole whereas a vibrant “Cobalt Blue” hue fills the suede mid-foot, heel and tongue. Striking hits of “True Red” then animate the sock liner, the medial side of the tongue and a portion of the half-blue tread underfoot while faint yellow accents illuminate the quarter and tongue tab. What’s more, the enlarged “N” logo has been cast in multi-color stitching in connection with the rainbow-treated insoles.
The New Balance The New Balance 550 "White with Aura “My City” is currently available via the store newbalance below for a retail price of $120. In the meantime, the pair can be seen ahead in official imagery.
