AURALEE’s New Balance 475 Pack Releases in August 2024

Japanese fashion label AURALEE has established an excellent relationship with New Balance over the past few years, releasing new sneakers with each seasonal collection. With the release of their 990v4 still on the horizon for 2024, this week they’ve unveiled another project in the works, a two-pack of colors for the 475 retro returning this year.

Last week, Teddy Santis, the founder of Aimé Leon Dore and the current creative director for New Balance’s Made in USA program, unveiled the latest retro runner to return to the brand’s catalog. The 475 model originally debut in the 1980s, and was built as a simple and supportive trail runner. The model is likely to be repurposed into a lifestyle model for its return this year, which was originally teased as an ALD collaboration that will lead into a healthy round of in-line offerings. However, this week a second popular collaborator of the Boston brand showed off their take on the model, Japan’s AURALEE.

The first team-up between AURALEE and New Balance launched back in 2021, helping the 550 rise to stardom through another limited-edition project. Since then, the two have released at least one collection each year, releasing at least two colors of a popular New Balance model on each occasion. They’ve released pairs of the 2002R, 1906R, RC30, and more in that time, with a release of the 990v4 still slated for sometime in 2024. Now, the 475 joins their growing catalog of releases in two fresh color schemes. The standout pair from the pack is the neutral look, pitting the shoe in a grey mesh upper with nubuck and suede overlays in shades of brown, grey, and brick red. The second pair goes for a green-tinted look, using a yellow-green shade for the mesh and some overlays, evening out the palette in shades of grey.


The next project from Japanese label AURALEE and New Balance has not been given a set release date yet, but will arrive later this Summer in August 2024. Featuring the 475 in two stylish colorways, pairs will likely be available through select AURALEE retailers and from both partners’ websites for an estimated $110. Check out the early images below for a better look at both pairs in the pack, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more NB release news, like the impending release of AURALEE’s 990v4 this Summer.
