Can I Skate in New Balance 550?

Yes, even though they have not been designed for skateboarding, just like the SBS, these are originally basketball shoes but made with comfort in mind. The New Balance 550 is an overall comfortable sneaker, albeit snug across the bridge of the foot, even when laced loosely. Despite being a vintage hoop shoe, these feel surprisingly light on feet. The Ortholite insole feels comfy, not very cushy but definitely noticeable.

The original New Balance 550 debuted way back in 1989 and made its mark on basketball courts from coast to coast. After its release, the 550 was filed away in the archives, before being reintroduced in limited-edition releases in late 2020. In 2021, it has reintroduced and quickly becoming a global fashion favorite. The 550’s low top, streamlined silhouette offers a clean take on the heavy-duty designs of the late ‘80s, while the dependable leather, synthetic, and mesh upper construction is a classic look in any era.
