For their latest collaboration with New Balance, Boston sneaker store, Concepts, takes inspiration from the classic Major League Baseball rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.
To represent the Red Sox, they have made over the the classic 998 in the brown and green hues of the red clay on most baseball diamonds, and the green facades seen throughout Boston’s famous Yawkey Way, steps from the Stadium. The upper is done in premium rust red and green suede with a leather lining and custom Concepts branded footbed.
Whilst to represent the Yankees, they’ve worked their magic on the 997, offering a teal premium suede upper with a pebbled leather reflective tongue, leather lining and custom Concepts branded footbed. The style pays homage to the inspiration for the logo of one of the most historic baseball teams in New York City.
This Made in USA pack will be releasing tomorrow at Limited Edt Vault, Somerset 313, Singapore.
