There is no better way to debut a sneaker than with a highly successful collaboration. After the highly anticipated release of the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 827 Abzorb, the American sportswear giant is releasing the 90s sneaker in its original minimalist colorways.
We will be getting two of the original colorways – white-based with either red/black or blue/orange accents. Both sneakers retain the white mesh uppers that keep them breathable and light. Instead of striking colored suede panels running from the heel to the forefoot, the sneaker now has a flat white leather panel laid over the mesh.
To add a pop of color, the sneaker has hits of color on the eyelets, N logo, pull tab, heel tab and outsole. 3M accents on the leather panel will keep you visible when running at night. With the Abzorb midsole, you could use these for a casual day out or an intense run around the block with no issues.
The New Balance 827 Abzorb is slated to drop on April 2 for US$145 (approx. S$209.60). Stay tuned for updates on a local release.
