Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance have been relatively silent on the joint efforts front since restocking a few of their 550s in late September, but that is changing as the end of 2021 draws closer. Recently, the partnership unveiled a New Balance 993 duo apparently inspired by the New York grain.

ALD has shaken up the sneaker space with a number of less advertised NB silhouettes, but the latest collaboration sees it reinventing the 993 for the first time. Both newly coated pairs indulge in a mesh base, an overlay combination of premium pork suede; ABZORB cushioning and accompanying Ndurance outsoles opt for a tone-on-tone black arrangement that allows the upper’s color palettes to revel in the spotlight. Teddy Santis, New Balance’s current Creative Director of Made In USA, hasn’t disclosed the pair’s inspirations, but when paired with the graffiti-like font on promotional material, the color schemes conspicuously become nods to the hometown of Santis. The dark brown and green on a pair are worthy of the nickname “Beef and Broccoli” widely attributed to a certain similarly colored Timerland blocking boot – inspired by a Chinese dish – while the gray, blue and burgundy arrangement on the second 993 could refer to the colors that enveloped MTA metro carriages in the 1990s, a time when “bombing” (spray paint) was much more common among city youth.
