New Balance is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the New Balance 1000 this year, not only bringing it back via in-line launches, but offering it as a canvas for its prominent collaborators to outfit as well. Joe Freshgoods kicked things off with the two-part “When Things Were Pure” pack last month. Now, hot off of its in-line debut in “Silver Metallic,” the sneaker has been revealed to be part of a forthcoming project with Aimé Leon Dore.

As unveiled by ALD founder and New Balance MADE in USA creative director Teddy Santis, this first look at the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 1000 comes equipped with a versatile white and gray color arrangement that features ALD branding sprinkled in at the tongue, sockliner and the lateral forefoot of the upper. Leaning primarily on white, a soft gray hue is included at the “N” logos on each side while also gracing various overlays.

At the time of writing, neither Teddy Santis nor New Balance have disclosed when this Aimé Leon Dore-designed version of the New Balance 1000 will be arriving on shelves. Stay tuned for updates, including the possible reveal of additional colorways, as we expect the sneaker to release later this year via New Balance, Aimé Leon Dore and select retailers around the $170 USD price point.
