Reintroducing a vintage tennis silhouette originally launched in 1982, the Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance T500 ‘Black’ is a component of a three-piece footwear collection. The ivory leather upper features a faux snakeskin ‘N’ logo, collar lining, and back tab in black. A robust rubber cupsole with stitched sidewall construction presents a classic off-white appearance with a vintage touch. Alternating Aimé Leon Dore and New Balance branding appears on the left and right shoe, echoed by dual branding on the woven tongue tag and sockliner.
In order to complete the vintage look of the sneaker, both the midsole and the outsole are colored in a cream hue. The base of these tennis oxfords is covered in a sail hue, which is balanced with the use of bright accents. The shoe has a low-cut silhouette and can be worn at any time of day because of its versatility.

Are New Balance shoes high quality?
A top choice for fitness walkers, New Balance shoes are known for their plush comfort and quality construction. The brand also offers sneakers in a wide range of styles that provide extra support for different types of wearers, like those with flat feet or fallen arches.
Why is New Balance so comfortable?
Walking shoes should provide comfort and support while minimizing foot pain and issues like plantar fasciitis. New Balance’s walking shoes generally have thick, cushioned midsoles that absorb impact, as well as well-designed footbeds that provide arch support (although some of their models are more minimal).
