Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 997 Review
Description
The New Balance 997 x Aimé Leon Dore comes in two sets of colorways as part of the Spring 2019 collection of the luxury brand. Both come in grey color base with the first having pops of millennial pink, purple and teal pigskin suede, pebbled nubuck, and mesh upper, while the second featuring hints of neon pink, yellow and navy blue. Both kicks boast branding on the white sole, tongue and heel, plus a floral-printed insole which we particularly like. Overall, these kicks are built on top of an ENCAP midsole cushioning and TPU heel counter.
