New Balance x Concepts ‘Made in the USA’ M997TNY – ‘Luxury Goods’

Thursday, February 26th, 2015


Resuming a fruitful partnership, Boston-based retailer Concepts have teamed up with their native neighbours New Balance for a premium reworking of the iconic M997 runner.

Taking the technical make-up of the 997, CNCPTS have utilised thick domestic pig suede and leather accents in a lush orange colourway, culminating in a shoe they have dubbed ‘Luxury Goods’. This moniker certainly rings true throughout with production carefully carried out at the brand’s very own Skowhegan, Maine facility with these fine materials.

As you would expect, the Beantown imprint have been respectful to the shoe’s roots with original details such as the branded tongue and heel tab kept in tact alongside the fresh white midsole unit which allows the orange to really pop.
