Aimé Leon Dore New Balance 860v2Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance are adding another retro runner to their repertoire. Shared in an early look by Teddy Santis, the ALD 860v2 is likely coming this season.

New Balance’s retro-styled 860v2 saw a string of hot releases back in 2020, notably featuring collaborations with thisisneverthat and Dime. Several in-line colorways followed, before the silhouette seemed to recede into the vaults of the Boston brand. Now, Teddy Santis’ Aimé Leon Dore is bringing it back, previewed in three colorways by the founder himself. While still in the sampling stage, all three styles feature a similar color blocking with accents in primary red, blue, or green. Each look features a gold toe panel and outline for the side ‘N’ logos, while the red features a discolored base layer in a mild yellow shade. Finally, ALD branding on the tongues completes the look.


Aimé Leon Dore’s take on the New Balance 860v2 has not been announced for release, though they are expected to launch sometime in Spring 2023. Featuring colorways in red, blue, and green, pairs will likely come with an estimated price tag of $160, dropping from both the ALD and New Balance websites. Check out Teddy’s early image above for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more NB release news.
