Just in time for Independence Day cookouts, barbecues and parties comes a collaboration inspired by the holiday between Boston-based brand New Balance and Cambridge, Mass.-based retailer Concepts.
Inspired by American heritage — with a nod to fireworks — the retailer utilized the brand’s classic NB 575 silhouette for the new M80. The shoe’s upper is all suede, featuring the material in a light washed red, blue and black denim in a bandanna-style print. The rest of the upper consists of a cream-colored suede surrounding the bandanna patchwork print. The shoe’s outsole is white with a gray bottom, with insoles that are also Independence Day-themed, with a look reminiscent of vintage fireworks.
Further celebrating the holiday, the sneakers will be packaged in a fireworks-themed shoebox.
Watch on FN
The collaboration will be available at both Concepts locations, in Cambridge and New York, with an online release to follow.
The shoe will be available July 1 and will retail for $160.
