Teddy Santis, the founder of Aimé Leon Dore, recently shared a photo via his Instagram account. This photo showed a new colorway on the New Balance 550 model. Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance are no strangers to each other; the two brands have already taken on the 550 model once before. We can expect their latest collaboration in spring 2021! Check out the latest New Balance 550 x Aimé Leon Dore here!

In the photo shared by Santis, the sneaker can be seen clearly. The 550 model has been given another vintage vibe that looks attractive. The swoosh has been given a yellow colour, as has the logo on the tongue. Furthermore, dark green details have been added to the shoe, which provide a nice contrast. The white upper makes the sneaker look fresh, while the yellowed sole gives the shoe a retro look.

As we mentioned above, Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance are no strangers to each other. The two brands have already had a number of collaborations. In 2020, ALD helped bring back the 550. This model was originally a basketball shoe, which came out in the late 80s. Especially for the collaboration, vintage colours were used which gave the shoe a retro look again. The sneakers were extremely popular, and now have a resell price a lot higher than the retail price.
What do you think of the vintage New Balance 550 x Aimé Leon Dore collaboration? We think this model is really hot! We have to wait and see when the sneaker will be released, but it will probably be in the spring of 2021.
