New Balance’s 550 retro basketball model has become the brand’s answer to the Dunk Low, releasing in a variety of colorways for all to enjoy. After the release of the “Shifted Sport” pack, the New Balance 550 is getting three more colorways in what the brand dubs the “Artist Pack.”

Each of the offerings in the 550 “Artist Pack” feature a white leather base and white N logo on the side panels, with pops of color coming through on the tongue, sockliner, heel counter, outsole, etc. Two of the colorways, the “UNC” blue and “Syracuse” orange, pay homage to college basketball, while the third comes in a monochromatic black and white “Panda” color scheme.

This pack is called the “Artist Pack” because it is releasing alongside an apparel collection featuring the artwork of NYC-based artist Kervin Brisseaux. Abstract street hoops-inspired graphics dress a half-zip jacket, basketball pants, and two tees.

The New Balance 550 “Artist Pack” and apparel collection launches on Wednesday, December 1st on and at select retailers.
