When it comes to sneaker collaborations Boston retailer Concepts puts their heart and soul into each thematic shoe release. This time they are celebrating the spirit of their city with a Boston Marathon-themed drop that is absolute heat.

The New Balance 998 model is the silhouette of choice and is given a patriotic upper. Red, black and blue suede is met with white mesh for a very straightforward color blocking that feels as no nonsense as it gets.

Silver croc-embossed 3M accents along with a Boston 2016 embroidery on the heel finish off this momentous look in winning fashion.

Even if you’re not planning on running in the marathon you can still make a trip to Boston and cop a pair right now at Concepts for $220. If you can't do that, an online release is slated for April 18.
