Aimé Leon Dore, a luxury fashion brand based in New York and spearheaded by Teddy Santis, has joined forces with New Balance once again to release an updated take on the popular NB 860V2 running shoe. The AIME LEON DORE x New Balance NB 860V2 showcases a striking metallic overlay that draws inspiration from the classic running shoe designs of the 1990s.
According to Aimé Leon Dore, the metallic finish was conceived to provide a refined interpretation of the original NB 860V2 design while retaining its utility. The shoe’s gold and silver logo and accents make it an elegant accessory for various occasions.
The AIME LEON DORE x New Balance NB 860V2 employs a mixture of materials that provide texture and dimensionality to the shoe. Its upper consists of long-lasting rip-stop nylon, gentle suede, and leather layers. Meanwhile, the metallic mesh underlayer and heel counter enhance breathability and provide support. Also, the reflective details on both the tongue and heel provide excellent visibility in low-light conditions, rendering this shoe apropos for nighttime activities.
The most prominent aspect of the NB 860V2 is its TruFuse midsole technology, which blends two different types of foam with a T-Beam stability shank, creating a responsive and smooth ride. The shoe’s ENCAP midsole has a firm polyurethane rim and a softer core of cushioning EVA, rendering it durable, stable, and comfortable. The AIME LEON DORE x New Balance NB 860V2 outsole features a blown rubber forefoot and a hard-wearing carbon rubber heel, delivering traction on various surfaces.
The AIME LEON DORE x New Balance NB 860V2 is available in select stores and online retailers for $220 in two colorways: cream/white and burgundy/navy. The shoe fits true to size and offers adequate support without restricting movement. If you are seeking a trendy and practical running shoe, the AIME LEON DORE x New Balance NB 860V2 could be the perfect choice.
