Lakers fans may not have much to cheer about in the world of basketball right now, but on the sneaker side things look golden. Nike and the Kobe Bryant estate, after announcing their renewed partnership, have just released the Kobe 6 “Mambacita” on what would have been Gigi Bryant’s Sweet 16 birthday, and adidas is following up with a reissue of the Crazy 97 that Kobe wore during the 1997 NBA Dunk Contest. Now New Balance is jumping into the fold with a duo of New Balance 550s that emanates classic gold and deep purple.

While there’s no official affiliation between the Lakers and these New Balance 550 colorways, it’s hard not to make that connection too much. After all, one of the brand’s most prominent endorsers was a Laker (James Worthy), so these might be a loose tribute to that partnership that lasted throughout the ’80s dynasty era. .

Two options are due out later this year; both feature a white leather base, but with varying color sets – another “Home” driven with a mix of yellow and gold tones, and a second that focuses on an indigo purple hue. Both have that clear Los Angeles look, so we already know West Coast will be pulling on them as soon as they become available.

The release date for these New Balance 550s is unknown, so take a look at the official images below, we’ll update you when we have more information.
