Teddy Santis posted teaser images of two upcoming Aime Leon Dore x New Balance 550 colorways on his Instagram story. However, the Aime Leon Dore designer did not give any additional information about when or how the sneakers will be released

The leaks revealed new color-blocking and construction that differs from prior ALD x NB 550 collabs. Both pairs will come with cream mesh bases, rather than the usual all-leather construction seen on prior releases. Another major difference is the use of dark green and navy blue leather overlays held down by contrast stitching – a bold design choice.

Some signature elements are retained in the new collaboration. Santis continues to use cracked leather for the “N” logos and once again, included cream hits in both colorways to give them a pre-aged, neo-vintage look.

These may not be the only ALD x NB 550 sets to release. In the images posted by Santis, two other suede New Balance P550 can be seen in the background. These could signal a much larger release that extends beyond the navy blue and dark green colorways.

Aime Leon Dore and New Balance have worked on the multiple New Balance 550 releases. The first batch of New Balance 550s received collegiate-inspired colorways, which were predominantly white and accented by hits of red, blue, grey or green. The second drop switched out the bold colors for earth tones and hues. The duo also released a pack of 827 Abzorb sneakers in bold ’90s-inspired colorways.
