If you used to watch Gundam as a kid like I did, then the latest colourway of the Concepts x New Balance ‘Boston Marathon’ 998 will have you feeling nostalgic.

Releasing right after their ‘City Rivalry’ pack, the Boston-based shop pays homage to the city’s marathon this year by delivering another crowd-pleasing New Balance collaboration consisting of a vibrant colour-blocking palette on a plush suede and mesh upper. This upper is combined with a subtle grey croc skin emboss on leather trims, supported by a blue-grey Abzorb™ midsole and finally finished off with “Boston 2016” embroidered on the heel counter.

The Concepts x New Balance 998 “Boston Marathon 2016” is available now exclusively at The Tannery and Concepts Cambridge in the US (yes we have American readers too), or online on April 18th.
