Baseball's most heated rivalry, between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, will come to a head on more than a few occasions this year. As previewed earlier, the Concepts x New Balance "City Rivalry" pack pits more than the two teams against one another, it also arouses competition between Concepts' two flagship locations.
The New York-edition 997 silhouette, offered in teal premium suede, is packaged within a Cracker Jack-inspired box, and features a pebbled leather tongue, leather lining and custom footbed. Meanwhile, the 998 is executed in rust red and green suede as a homage to the clay baseball diamonds around the league, as well as the green facades along historic Yawkey Way.
The Concepts x New Balance "City Rivalry" 997 will be available exclusively at Concepts NYC beginning April 9 for a retail price of $239.95 USD.
The Concepts x New Balance "City Rivalry" 998 will be available exclusively at Concepts Cambridge beginning April 11 for a retail price of $219.95 USD.
Both styles will be available online beginning April 16.
