Aimé Leon Dore launches first-ever sneaker

Oct 22, 2016

Aimé Leon Dore on Friday launched the first of three sneakers from its first-ever footwear collection. The New York City-based designer unveiled the sneaker styles in Paris during fashion week in June.

The ALD Q14 sneaker

The new sneaker, the Q14, is a low top silhouette with a cup sole, cow leather lining and a gold embossed logo on the heel. Aimé Leon Dore named the Q14 sneaker after a bus that used to run through Queens in New York City until 2010, and the brand offers the sneaker in white, grey and blue colorways with Benisa, Evora and Nubuck upper options.
The New York City-based brand was founded by Queens, NY-native Teddy Santis in 2014 and launched with a men’s apparel capsule. Since its launch, Aimé Leon Dore formed a partnership with Kith and collaborated on sneakers with Puma. The brand also launched its first women’s collection at the start of 2016.

The Q14 sneaker retails for $255 on the Aimé Leon Dore website.
