The Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance partnership continues. The ALD x NB collabs have fused New Balance heritage with a revival of silhouettes lost in the brand’s extensive archive. Thanks to Teddy Santis, his vision, and his famed label, the rise of New Balance’s popularity wouldn’t be where it is today without the help of the Queens-based boutique.
As New Balance’s creative director recently announced, Santis is continuing his work as he previewed a trio of upcoming ALD x New Balance gems. The 650R, a retro-inspired hardwood classic, is the latest silhouette to get the ALD treatment. The high-top sneaker appears in a minimal look as a predominantly white upper is met with green, grey, and black treatment across the respective pairs. In addition to that pop of color, the collab features a slightly aged look on the midsole to give the upcoming Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 650R collection an authentic look.
The official release date on the upcoming Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 650R is still unconfirmed, but it’s more than likely that we see the pairs release during SS22. However, we’re almost certain that the pairs will release exclusively on AimeLeonDore.com, followed by a wider release on NewBalance.com.
