Teddy Santis, the visionary founder and creative director behind the New York City lifestyle brand Aimé Leon Dore (ALD), has seen a rapid and well-deserved rise in the world of fashion. His distinct creative approach and aesthetic flair have earned him the role of Creative Director for New Balance's MADE in USA line. With Santis leading the charge, the collaboration between these two influential brands promises to blend their design philosophies, reinforcing their shared commitment to quality, style, and authenticity.
At present, Santis is deeply engaged in the crafting of his third season collection in collaboration with the esteemed Boston-based brand, New Balance. One of the highlights of this collection is the subtle yet stylish New Balance 990v4 Made in USA, rendered in a tasteful palette of white cream and beige.
This upcoming version of the 990v4, a testament to Santis' meticulous design sensibility and New Balance's dedication to top-tier craftsmanship, sports a breathable mesh, leather, and suede upper in varying shades of white and cream. Adding a touch of classic New Balance identity, the sneaker is accented with the brand's iconic silver midfoot motifs. The rear of the shoe is graced by a shaggy suede heel overlay in light tan, adding a playful yet refined touch. The design is rounded off with a cream, white, and grey rubber outsole, encapsulating the understated elegance that Santis brings to this timeless silhouette.
Keep an eye out for the New Balance 990v4 Made in USA “White/Cream” edition to drop on July 27 at select New Balance retailers and via the NewBalance.com website for $210; Pairs are already available in select Asian markets.
