Both based in Boston, New Balance and Concepts are no strangers to collaboration, linking up to release their latest, the 999 “Hyannis,” earlier this month. Now, the shoe is seeing release once again.
The “Hyannis” is a remake of the pair’s first collaborative model, which riffs on the village of Hyannis’ nautical heritage. Featuring pigskin suede across the upper with premium embossed nubuck utilized for the foxing, the made-in-USA sneaker is rife with tenets of quality. Nautical flags dot the sockliner and tongue tag, driving the nautical theme home.
