Back in 2011, Concepts and New Balance released an instant classic, the 999 "Kennedy," featuring a design inspired by the sailing tradition of New England. Six years later, both brands revisit the theme with the 999 "Hyannis," which reboots the original with made in the USA editions of the retro silhouette. The sneaker will be available both in the original blue colorway, as well as an alternate red that was never produced. Both feature pigskin suede embossed nubuck on the upper, with nautical flags adorning the sockliner and tongue tag. Retailing for $200, the Concepts x New Balance 999 "Hyannis" will launch exclusively at ComplexCon in Long Beach, CA. A limited number of the red colorway will drop Saturday, November 4th, and its blue counterpart will follow on Sunday, November 5th.
