Above all, there’s simply no arguing that the most popular model over the last 12-months has been the BB550. Its influence has been profound across social media, consistently making its way into most fashion-savvy individuals top picks for the year, and it’s not hard to see why.

New Balance BB550 Triple Black Information

Release date: Available now
Style #: BB550BBB
Price: AU$180

The sneaker itself pays tribute to the late 80s, first released in 1989, it defined a hoops generation. While we associate the sneaker with double-knee Carhartt pants and vintage band t-shirts today, the sneaker was originally worn by pro ballers throughout the ’80s and ’90s. Today, the shoe has found love for its retro aesthetic that is simple, clean and true to its legacy. Arriving here in a triple black colourway that’s sure to impress, alongside a simple white and burgundy scheme.

Construction is by way of a synthetic leather upper, and while we wouldn’t recommend jumping into a game of pick up at your local basketball court anytime soon, the shoe is regarded as comfortable for everyday wear. Pair these with your favourite black, khaki, or carpenter jeans – the triple black colour bridges the gap between sneaker and smart casual dress shoes perfectly.
