Originally introduced during the 1980s, the New Balance T500 is an all but forgotten tennis shoe from the footwear brand’s past. But thanks to Aimé Leon Dore, that’ll no longer be the case, as they’re integrating the model into their Fall/Winter 2023 collection.
Essentially providing the sneaker the same treatment as the 550 — another classic brought out of the archive with help from Teddy Santis and company — Aimé Leon Dore has prepared the T500 in three collaborative colorways. Retaining the simple, straightforward look typical of tennis shoes from the above-mentioned era, the trio features a white leather base and subtle cream finish across their midsoles. The pairs then dress their heel tabs, lining, and branding in either red, green, or blue.
Presented with an assist from none other than Coco Gauff, the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance T500 is likely to debut very soon. For now, stay tuned for further updates and enjoy a look at the three colorways ahead.
