Aimé Leon Dore bossman Teddy Santis has taken to his Instagram to showcase a new yet upcoming partnership with New Balance; two takes on the 1300. One silhouette is covered in a rich forest green whereas the other takes on a chalky pink, but both serve up a healthy dose of ALD’s elevated athleisure style, and serve as a more muted follow-up to ALD and NB’s 827s from March.
Each tongue is made of eggshell white foam and features a large tag with a Unisphere graphic inspired by Santis’s hometown of Queens, New York. Bone-colored heel counters and ENCAP midsoles complete each look.
Uppers are built from a flexible suede, which lays atop a sporty mesh. Both pairs keep the base tonal and use the midfoot N logos and heel pieces to add some contrast— silver and white on the former, navy blue on the latter.
A release date has yet to be revealed, but the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 1300 will continue a busy 2020 for the old-school runner, which has also released in an ultra-premium made-in-Japan silhouette and served as the centerpiece of an “Orange Tab” collaboration with Levi’s.
