The New Balance 650R ALD is a collab that many people got because there was a proper method to its release. Yes, a legit preorder. Something we’ve recommended for a long time.
Unlike some other, more prominent brands, New Balance seems to care about people getting their products instead of only building hype. But is the 650R ALD worth your money? It depends on you, to be honest. Leather quality is what we expect from New Balance, though it isn’t much different from their other popular models.
