Editor’s Notes: Concepts and adidas Consortium have come together for a special release of the Energy Boost, pulling inspiration from the infamous massage parlours in Boston’s Chinatown.

Dubbed “Shiatsu” as a nod to Asian culture’s frequent use of the Jade stone, and the traditional Shiatsu Massage, the sneaker features a white knit upper, complemented by a marble TPU cage and green Three Stripes branding. The insoles are then branded, as the shoe comes with three sets of laces, packaged in a custom Concepts box.

The Concepts x adidas Energy Boost “Shiatsu” launched July 21 at Concepts’ Newbury Street and New York locations at 10 a.m. EST, and online at 11 a.m. EST.
