Following their 57/40 collaboration in reference to the iconic rivalry between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, Concepts and New Balance link up for another fruitful partnership in the form of a 992 design inspired by kiwis and strawberries.
Thanks to Dennis Todisco, we got a sneak peek at what’s in store. From the lateral view, the uppers are constructed with a combination of tan suede and mesh wrapped with fuzzy suede overlays in a khaki hue. Pops of lime green detail the signature “N” logos on the quarters, upper eyestays and tongue’s “EPTS” branding on one side while the other sports a “CONC” text. Looking into the interiors, the sock liners feature a collage of strawberries with the Concepts logo laid over while another branding is found above the heel counter. The midsole adopts the same fluorescent green hue quipped with the ENCAP technology near the arch and heel accompanied by an off-white shade to fill out the fore-front over a black rubber outsole.
The pair is encased in its own specially designed packaging showcasing a brown wooden box-like layout with graphics of the fruits and branding components in a matching palette.
Further details on the release are yet to be announced by both brands.
