Editor’s Notes: For its latest collaboration, Concepts is honing in on the transatlantic partnership between Concepts and New Balance's Flimby, U.K. production facility. As the retailer points out, the joint effort is ultimately inspired by "the bizarre story of an American businessman relocating the London Bridge to Lake Havasu, Arizona, as a tourist attraction."
The Concepts x New Balance Made in U.K. 991.5 "Lake Havasu" finds premium suede and nubuck coming together across the upper, as the shoe is further accented by a number of reflective hits. A gum outsole in turn draws attention to the bottom of the sneaker, which arrives in a custom box, packaged with three different sets of laces and a Concepts lace lock.
The collaborative "Lake Havasu" release will take place online only.
Ahead of this anticipated launch launch, be sure not to miss out on the best kicks dropping this weekend.
