In partnership with the Tokyo fashion icon and label, the AURALEE x New Balance 550 ‘Ecru’ supplies a refined finish on the vintage hoops. A subdued off-white finish is accomplished on the leather upper, save for a New Balance trademark in contrasting black lettering on the heel tab. In lieu of classic nylon, the tongue is constructed from leather and stripped of the oversized woven tag. Mismatched AURALEE and New balance logo is stamped on each shoe’s sockliner. The low-top rests on a pre-yellowed rubber midsole with an EVA wedge for lightweight cushioning.
