Concepts, the sneaker store based in the Cambridge neighborhood of Harvard Square, just north of Boston, has a long history of collaborations, and is certainly on the vanguard of sneaker culture. They have done a number of releases with Asics, Brooks, Vans, Nike, and New Balance. Their most recent New Balance is based on the Hermes classic orange color scheme, and is on the 997 model, made in the USA of soft suede and leather. A great runner. Wore these over the weekend and snapped a picture.
