Originally made to be an all-purpose running shoe, the 860 is set to make its streetwear debut very soon with this upcoming collaboration. Teased via Santis' Instagram page, Aime Leon Dore's rendition of the vintage-inspired model is coming in three distinct colorways including green, red, and blue. All pairs feature a mesh and leather construction, with a gradient effect that fades from a rich copper hue at the front all the way into a metallic silver scheme. The oversized "N" logos along the sidewalls are outlined in gold, while "Aime Leon Dore" features across the tongues in New Balance's signature font. To round it all off, the midsole is crafted from ABZORB foam, and it's infused with N-ERGY cushioning for comfort that has been taken to another level.
