Boston retailer Concepts has always done a great job with its collaborations, particularly with New Balance, and in the last month it has revealed two more great New Balance collaborations. The “C-Note” may have already come and gone at retailers across the globe but for those of you who missed out, the “Mint” is set to drop tomorrow. With that in mind, we’ve decided to take a closer look at these two collaborations. Working with a monetary theme, the team at Concepts worked up the new one hundred-dollar bill-inspired New Balance 998 “C-Note,” which incorporated several hues used in the new bill to stunning effect. Following that up is the New Balance 998 “Mint,” a colorway inspired by the United States Mint and featuring a fresh mint-colored upper with light orange accents. Which do you prefer, “C-Note” or “Mint”? Let us know below.
