The arrival of the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance 550 is guaranteed to excite both die-hard sneaker fans and casual collectors alike. The truth is that everything ALD-related gets the heart pumping these days, although its continuous collaborations with NB are in a league of their own.
The 550 is bulky because it was designed to resemble vintage basketball shoes. Clunky but not in the stereotypical dad sneaker sense.
