Both Massachusetts based CCONCEPTS and New Balance are partnering up to pay homage to one of Boston's historic landmarks, The Freedom Trail, with an eponymous collaboration collection through the latter's partnership program. The collaboration collection includes a reworked classic 1500 sneaker and a new model, the 875 boot. Taking inspiration from the red footpath and brown bricks that make up The Freedom Trail in the antiquated section of Boston's North End, the kicks have the simple earthy palettes of brown leather upper with red accents.
While the heritage 1500 style was introduced back in 1989 as a technical running shoe, the remake includes exclusive updates such as incorporation of full grain leather, pig skin lining and embossed tongue tag for Concepts. The new style, the 875 boot, is also crafted from the same brown full grain leather upper with pig skin lining, but has the New Balance Rollbar Technology and PU Wedge (also found in the NB 993) worked in.
The 875 boot will debut in The Freedom Trail Collection, which will be made available on Black Friday, November 27th, at Concepts. Other than insane deals on plasma TV and the usual gadget line-up, now here's something interesting to mix the Black Friday madness up even more.
