Aimé Leon Dore assisted New Balance in the re-release of the 550, a late ’80s basketball silhouette that had laid dormant since its initial release, last year with a collection of vintage colorways. The sneaker was a huge hit, with New Balance bringing a number of tonal and vintage-inspired colorways to market as general releases in the following months.
This year, Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance have at least one more colorway coming (though we suspect there will be more unveiled soon). The pair Santis shared on Instagram features a white leather upper with hits of dark, forest green on the ankle collar, tongue, and heel. Cream accents are also seen on the cracked-leather “N” logo, as well as the tongue. The midsole is treated with a pre-aged look and features hits of the same deep green.
No concrete release details exist just yet, though Santis confirmed in his caption that the sneaker would be released this Spring. As always, stay tuned for updates.
