The New Balance 505 is a running shoe that’s sleek and lightweight. The company has been around for more than 100 years and is well-known for its dedication to quality and craftsmanship. The New Balance design language is a trademark that encompasses iconic silhouettes and is widely known in the athletic community.
The 505 features a durable upper and a grippy rubber outsole. It also features Ndurance technology to provide maximum durability in high-wear areas. The shoe comes in a variety colors. The midsole and heel are designed for optimum support. ABZORB inserts distribute impact and reduce pain in your heel and ankle.
The New Balance 505 was designed after the 574. Original shoe featured suede overlays and ENCAP midsole cushioning. The layout of the midsole allowed for multiple colorblocking options. The colors were subtle and consistent with greys and blues. Many athletes still wear it today.
In addition to collaborations with NBA star Kawhi Leonard, the company also partners with many celebrities. The brand has also teamed up with fashion designer Paul Smith and apparel company Aime Leon Dore. Some of the brand ambassadors include Boston Red Sox shortstop Xavier Bogaerts, Jaden Smith, and Sydney McLaughlin.
The New Balance P550 by Aime Len Dore is available with four white color options. It sports New Balance’s “N” branding on its side. It is also co-branded with Casablanca. It is a shoe that is a mix of heritage and modern design. You can choose between a high-top and low-top version.
