NYC streetwear brand Aime Leon Dore teamed up with New Balance to rework the legendary Made In US 990. Using the slogan “Life in the Balance”, the sneaker pays homage to both city and country life.
In recent years, NB’s standout silhouette gained acclaim from people from all walks of life. Just like the claim “Worn by supermodels in London and dads in Ohio” indicates, the 990 looks just as good on runways as it does on the street.
ALD added a rich green tone to lush suede overlays which wrap around a breathable upper in blue. The TPU Power Strap and ENCAP midsole provide a familiar level of wearing comfort and support. A subtle Aime Leon Dore tag appears next to the “N” logo, while ALD branding on the heels and insoles finalizes the collaboration.
DID YOU KNOW?
The 990 actually originated from a challenge by New Balance CEO Jim Davis to the design team. The subject of this challenge was nothing less than to come up woth the most innovative running shoe in the industry.
