Through Kawhi Leonard, New Balance has crept into the performance-basketball space over the last five years. Yet, silhouettes like the New Balance 550 have reminded consumers everywhere about the Boston-based brand’s offerings for the sport from the 1980s.
While not as popular as its low-top counterpart, the New Balance BB9000 is another silhouette helping the 115-year-old company revisit the past by presenting heritage design in a new way. “Simple” when compared to modern-day basketball shoes, the model has recently covered its mesh base and suede overlays in a lifestyle-appropriate mix of “Black Emerald,” “Atomic Yellow” and grey. With its color palette and tall collar, the sneaker seems perfect for the upcoming winter, although the robust sole unit emphasizes its hoops-ready abilities. New Balance FuelCell-cushioning is coupled with multi-directional traction for a solution fit for the hardwood.
