Back in March, AURALEE unveiled their AW21 Collection, with a Japanese-inspired New Balance 550 making a prominent appearance on the digital event. Several months later, the upcoming collaboration is finally set to release to the public.
When it comes down to Japanese-inspired fashion, the beauty always arrive from the details. Noticeably blanketed in an all-white color, the pair’s unique retro construction give the otherwise monochromatic look a splash of good charming aesthetics. An aged look, as seen on the yellowed midsole, coupled with retro styled blocking complete the design. Branding is kept to a minimum, with the “AURALEE” name placed only on the midsole.
Look for the AURALEE x New Balance 550 to release in Japan on July 16 and globally on July 26. Until then, be sure to enjoy photos below.
