Aimé Leon Dore has announced the release date for their New Balance collaboration first previewed in March. The lifestyle, sport brand out of Queens, New York has focused on an aesthetically pleasing 997 for this upcoming Spring.
Drawing inspiration from vintage sportswear, the label has truly made this collaboration their own. Aimé Leon Dore opts for the 997 while including shades of yellow and magenta on the tongues, navy and pink colored, olive green and blue on the heels, and pink and blue eyelets. The pairs come in alternating variations between left and right shoe, one being the lighter variation the and darker. The New Balance displays “Made in the USA” on the tongue and branding on the back.
Not only are sneakers dropping but a collection of matching apparel will be dropping as well. You can expect to see soft colored pieces such as tennis shorts, crewnecks, hoodies and more to match the sneaker. The vintage feel and look to this collection proves why New Balance delivers some of the most high quality collaborations to date.
