Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance Team Up on a Trio of Subtle T500s

They say fashion trends tend to be cyclical, and we often return to styles that have been hot before. The recent rise in popularity that New Balance has seen is the perfect example of this phenomenon (along with the popularity of Y2K-era fashion in general). New Balance has taken notice of this interest and is striking while the iron’s hot, with a number of collaborations (like the 990v6s with Action Bronson) that cater to a more fashion-conscious audience already under their belt. Aimé Leon Dore is a fashion label that’s bridging the gap between streetwear and designer/luxury fashion and has teamed up with New Balance before. Now, the duo is back with three takes on the classic T500 silhouette (a tennis shoe that came out in the early ‘80s) with the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance T500 collection.

Getting into the specs, these shoes are made with premium leather overlays and underlays, and feature a synthetic leather collar lining. You’re getting a rubber outsole, cupsole, and embossed snakeskin pattern leather for the New Balance logo & heel tab. You’ll find Aimé Leon Dore’s logo on the tongue, with a co-branded heel tab to mark another successful collab between the two labels (along with a co-branded shoe box to boot).

As for the colorways, you can choose between black, red, and green (a trio of colors that ALD is undoubtedly a fan of). These shoes are also a part of Aimé Leon Dore’s Fall ‘23 Uniform collection that’s dropping today.

The Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance T500 collection is available now through Aimé Leon Dore’s website and New Balance’s website for $130, but you should act soon if you’re interested, as the red colorway is already sold out at the time of writing.
