Aime Leon Dore is giving fans another chance at buying its sold-out New Balance 550 collabs, and for sneakers fans who want to get a pair, they will need to act fast.
The popular New York-based lifestyle label announced on Instagram yesterday that its collaborative New Balance 550 styles that debuted last year are restocking in the “Green,” “Navy,” and “Grey” colorways before week’s end.
The ALD x New Balance 550s feature a premium full-grain leather upper that’s combined with soft mesh underlay panels. Each of the three pairs is contrasted by subtle accents including in green, navy, or gray on the “N” and “550” at the midfoot and ankle collar while a vintage-inspired sail EVA midsole and rubber cupsole complete the look.
According to Aime Leon Dore’s founder Teddy Santis, this collab was the first time that the silhouette returned to shelves since its debut in 1989. The New Balance 550 was initially designed as a performance basketball shoe but the recent reissues of the model are made for lifestyle purposes.
At the time of publication, the raffle for the three Aime Leon Dore x New Balance 550 styles is live and fans are required to submit their entries before tomorrow at 10 a.m. ET. The P550 will receive a general release this Friday exclusively at Aimeleondore.com but a specific time for the drop wasn’t revealed by the brand. The shoes retail for $130 each.
