The Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 550 “Silver” is a classic take on the throwback basketball sneaker, which was reintroduced by the New York-based streetwear label in October 2020. The 550 made its debut in the late 1980s as part of New Balance’s basketball line, but it was never associated with a single player or notable moment in the NBA or elsewhere, which led to the model’s obscurity in the years after its debut. As part of its growing cooperation with New Balance, Aimé Leon Dore resurrected the model in 2020, giving it a second life as a modern, retro-inspired lifestyle silhouette. The upper is made up of a mix of smooth and dotted white leather. The white leather base is offset with silver “550” detailing on the forefoot and “N” branding on either side. The back of the jacket has dual Aimé Leon Dore and “NB” branding.
