Concepts creative director Deon Point has teased the retailer’s latest collaboration with New Balance: a bright orange iteration of the 57/40. Accompanied by “Get Home Safe” and “Headin’ Home” taglines, the shoe’s special packaging — which was revealed in an Instagram story from Julia Lang — seems to indicate a hybrid baseball and theater inspiration, potentially serving as a follow-up to the Concepts x New Balance 997S “ESRUC” from 2019.

Though the official inspiration still has yet to be revealed by Point or Concepts, the shoe supplies a vibrant mix of orange tones that’s perfect for the transition from summer to fall. The centerpiece of this build is a bright orange leather N midfoot logo plus a matching orange suede heel piece and tongue, with creamsicle orange suede appearing on the midfoot, forefoot and toebox. A burgundy-like tone is used on the eyestays, and cream suede is interpolated through the entirety of the shoe for contrast.

At the time of writing, an official release date for the Concepts x New Balance 57/40 has yet to be revealed. However, it’ll likely arrive in the coming months.

Elsewhere in the world of New Balance collaborations, the Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 990v3 “Outside Clothes” will receive a global release in September.
