Anyone who has a deep appreciation for sneaker and street style culture will know well the influence New Balance is having on streetwear. From the iconic 990v5 dad sneaker that has sold out the world over and seamlessly became the sneaker of the pandemic; to the brand's more recent winning style, the New Balance 550. Aside from the winning formula the brand has masterfully crafted on its own, it's the ability to nail arguably some of the most in-demand collaborations that has set New Balance apart. First, with Rich Paul on an exclusive release of the 550, and now with Aimé Leon Dore. The most important question, of course, is where do you go to buy New Balance x Aimé Leon Dore 993?
The latest New Balance x Aimé Leon Dore collaboration is a drop baed around the Made in US New Balance 993.
Originally introduced in 2008, the 993 combined elements of the two previous 99X series models – the 991 and 992 – into one, streamlined design. For this new iteration in the colourway 'Taupe', the New Balance x Aimé Leon Dore 993 sneaker features suede overlays, mesh underlays, ABZORB midsole, reflective details, rubber outsole, the signature Aimé Leon Dore branded insert, and custom ALD branded foxing insert.
Who is Aimé Leon Dore?
For the uninitiated, Aimé Leon Dore is a New York-based fashion and lifestyle brand. Inspired the daily life and culture harmonious with NYC, the brand has continued to refine and progress the definition of men’s fashion through a clean, bold and classic aesthetic. Naturally, building a majorly-hyped and widely loved brand identity along the way.
Where to buy New Balance x Aimé Leon Dore 993 in Australia?
The New Balance x Aimé Leon Dore 993 will launch globally on February 11, 2022. Thankfully, for once, us sneakerheads down under won't have to scramble to an American site to get our hands on the drop. Both Sneakerboy and Subtype will be stocking the collection; but if we know anything about a New Balance collaboration, these will definitely sell out fast.
