Aldo Launches a Sneaker Collection in Collaboration With Global Street Artists

Montreal-based footwear brand Aldo has tapped some of the world’s most admired street artists for a limited-edition collection of sneakers. Mx (Aldo’s sneaker subbrand) teamed up with five collaborators, Buff Monster (New York), INSA (London), So Youn Lee (Seoul), Dina Saadi (Dubai), and Pony (Montreal), all of whom approached the sneakers as a blank canvas and turned out kicks that double as works of art. The sneakers are a reflection of the artists who, in turn, are a reflection of their storied cities and communities. The limited-edition sneakers feature a breathable mesh upper and are set on a cushioned heel. The collaboration drops August 23rd in select Aldo stores and online.
