Teddy Santis will be taking the role as creative director for New Balance Made in USA next year, and is still collaborating with the Boston brand for his New York-based fashion imprint Aimé Leon Dore in the meantime.

Upcoming between the two entities is the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 650R collab, which Santis previewed on Instagram today. The shoe is essentially the high-top version of their recent P550 Basketball Oxford styles and is offered in green, grey, and black color schemes while co-branding is applied to the tongue tags. The trio also features a vintage-inspired look with pre-yellowed midsoles.

Santis confirmed that the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 650R collab will be released sometime in Spring ‘22, but an official release date wasn’t announced.

UPDATE (07/28): Although the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 650R styles won’t officially release until next year, the label confirmed today on Instagram that limited early reservations to buy the collab will open this Friday, July 30. To participate, fans are asked to subscribe to the label’s mailing list at Aimeleondore.com.
