A new colourway has been revealed for the New Balance 550s, this time in homage to one of the most recognizable franchises in the NBA.

Although there is no official affiliation between the Los Angeles Lakers and this new pair of New Balance 550s, their presentations clearly nod to the signature purple and gold.

Two iterations are set to release later this year. Both feature the same white leather base, but with different colour packages.

The first one, modeled after the team’s “Association” uniform, features a mix of yellow and golden accents that are featured on the N logos and the basketballs located on the tongues. Lakers purple is splashed on the "550" and tongue lettering along with the "N" insignia outline.

The second pair, bearing similarity to the team’s “Statement” uniform predominantly features the iconic purple along parts of the heel, the N insignias, front and back ends of the soles and the tongue graphics. Lakers yellow makes up the N logo outlines, along with the “550” and tongue letterings.

No release date has been revealed yet for the upcoming New Balance 550 “Lakers Pack”, but expect the footwear brand to drop these shortly.
