Teddy Santis Previews Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 650R

Luis Torres

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, followed by a wider release on

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
