Restock! Three OG Aime Leon Dore x New Balance 550 Colourways
Update: The restock of three OG colourways of the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 550 is happening right now! An exclusive early access raffle began last Friday, giving those who either preordered the duo's 650R collaboration or are loyal OG Aimé Leon Dore customers, first dibs. Nevertheless, a limited public drop has now been scheduled for October 1 and anyone can enter the draw to cop on here right now.
In October 2020, New York clothing brand Aimé Leon Dore shifted the sneakersphere when they resurrected the New Balance 550. And we’ve just discovered that three of the original Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 550 colourways are preparing for a restock!
The initial release saw four colour combos touch down, and it seemed the favourites were the green and the red. Coming soon, the restock will also contain the grey, navy and green, but sadly red has been left out.
Since its collaborative inception, the NB 550 has been given a bunch of GR recreations, and only one other collaboration, with Japanese brand AURALEE. While still using the basic GR construction, Aimé Leon Dore's take on the 550 is slightly different. The most notable change is the vintage look, with the 'N' branding purposely boasting cracked leather. Pre-yellowing also adds a worn vibe to the midsole. Rounding out the colab is the specialised co-branding placed on the tongue.
