The Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance collaboration conveyor belt may have temporarily ceased operations. On May 24, the New York-based brand teased the release of its Made in USA 990v2 sneakers, dubbed “Sea Salt,” but removed the shoes from its Instagram page and website just as swiftly as they appeared.

The 990v2 – initially slated to be dropping by May 27 – featured in Aimé Leon Dore's Spring/Summer 2022 campaign and are the latest in a long list of collaborative releases between them and New Balance. This link-up actually marks the second time the duo have reworked the chunky 990v2 silhouette, first dropping a blue and yellow take back in 2019.

Set to be released via raffle for $195 USD on the Aimé Leon Dore website (now replaced by a 404 page), the latest 990v2 collab's sudden disappearance may point towards a delay in the sneaker’s release.

Aimé Leon Dore founder Teddy Santis was last year named creative director of New Balance’s Made in USA program after years of collaborative releases, and dropped his first much-anticipated seasonal collection in early May with more already on the horizon.

Co-releases between ALD and NB have been quiet of late (likely as a result of Santis' new role), rumors have surfaced that the Queens native would revisit the basketball-inspired New Balance 650R after the silhouette's initial release last month, with a trio of sample colorways recently emerging online.
