Its O.G. status has allowed Concepts to work with nearly every major brand in the game. It’s refreshing and impressive that Concepts can work with a plethora of brands and things in its own way. Each release comes with custom packaging, and the shop has gone the extra mile by including collector items such as tennis balls and Christmas ornaments with its collabs. It’s tough to beat a great sneaker that has been made better through the time and effort put into the entire release. That’s why Concepts is on top of its game right now. Let’s take a look through some of our favorite 5 Concepts collaborations.
1. New Balance 998 “C-Note”
In 2014, Concepts worked with New Balance three times, but its most notable work was on the 998 “C-Note,” a Made-In-USA version of the sneaker that was inspired by the $100 bill redesign. Buy here.
2. FILA Original Tennis
The classic silhouette is reworked with a suede upper and embroidered two-tone accents atop a white midsole with gum outsole. Premium leather lining, FILA logo on the tongue and upper, gold foil branding on the insole, and D-ring eyelets complete the limited edition collaboration. Available in black with green/red accents or ivory with navy/red. Buy here.
3. Ewing 33 Hi
Paying homage to Patrick Ewing’s time spent at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, the black and grey suede upper makes enough of a statement already however the 3M tongue just tosses things into overdrive. Finished off by a gum outsole these are an excellent take on the beloved silhouette. Buy here.
4. Canada Goose MA-1 Lodge Hoody
The MA-1 has a double layer olive green windproof, water resistant shell that showcases a reflective GI-star pattern. The inside is lined with the signature bright orange lining, and is 750 power filled with the finest white duck down. Buy here.
5. ASICS Gel Lyte III “Boston Tea Party”
The shoe is dressed in a patriotic color scheme of Red, White, Blue, Gold and Silver that represents the English shipment of tea in Boston Harbor that sparked the American revolution. Built with a premium suede base the Olympic colors are accented throughout, while the Tiger Stripe branding is done in Metallic Gold and Silver for a nice luxury finish. Buy here.
