When you take two great labels who produce both brilliant ideas and premium materials on striking silhouettes, you get a gorgeous set of shoes dubbed as the ‘City Rivalry’ pack developed from the successful rapport between Concepts and New Balance. Two of America’s most prominent cities in Major League Baseball (MLB), New York City and Boston, have inspired Concepts’ 20th anniversary collaboration pack with New Balance.

Paying homage to the Cambridge store in Massachusetts, the New Balance 997 features a Tiffany green premium suede upper that contrasts perfectly with the silver-grey on the top line, collar, quarter, tongue and outsole. The pebbled leather on the tongue and collar of the shoe is what sets New Balance apart from its competition, demonstrating their meticulous attention to detail.

On the flip side of the ‘City Rivalry’ pack, the New Balance 998 dubbed ‘Boston’, paying homage to Concepts’ home town with a coat of rusty red and washed-out green plush premium suede, colour-blocking harmoniously together. Both sneakers in the ‘City Rivalry’ pack are supported on crispy white midsoles, leaving us with yet another beautiful collaboration from the Boston-based outfit.
