Concepts x New Balance CM496 ‘Pool Blue’
Due to the fact that it's always a few degrees cooler by the water, the last thing any East Coaster probably wants right now is to be situated next to it, but that doesn't mean its too cold for sailing-inspired themes. Concepts let the water inspire their next release and the result is the nautical-flavored New Balance CM496 "Pool Blue."
For this collaboration, Concepts slathered the upper in suede with a color scheme that is reminiscent of the flags you'd find flying on a sailboat. You'd almost halfway expect some sort of ripstop nylon to pop up but the Boston-based retailer kept it confined to fabrics that will keep your feet warm for this run.
These are set to release on Nov. 15 at the Boston location or the newly-minted Tribeca, N.Y., shop as well as online.
