Creative directed by Joe Freshgoods, Conversations Amongst Us reimagines the 550. In a culture where you’re only as fresh as your white sneaks and your fit is the perfect conversation starter, this 550 design takes cues from the historical and cultural styles of communication and celebrates the conversations within the Black community, while opening the landscape for new dialogue. Featuring a canvas upper, hairy suede collar, and ‘Conversations Amongst Us’ branding on the tongue and sockliner, this shoe invites color by the way of vintage yellowing with a worn and tattered appearance laced with a to tell a story.

Get Fresh

“When we ‘get fresh’ it usually includes putting on a pair of all white kicks — an age-old tradition still alive and well. The yellowed tone of the white tells that story of the “age-old” tradition.” - Jordan Johnson, Associate Product Manager, New Balance Global Collabs/Energy

Constructing the story

“From a material perspective, we wanted to highlight the benefits we receive from these gatherings. We have to be resilient (ripstop), transparent (tinted TPU overlays), and reflective, all of which are integral to personal development.” - Jordan Johnson, Associate Product Manager, New Balance Global Collabs/Energy
