Concepts X Brooks Chariot (Merlot)
UPDATE: Lucky for us we were granted a a chance from Concepts to bust a few happy snaps of these before they hit the wild. Check out these buttery-Brooks above, ahead of the release this Saturday, September 13.
Concepts have been known to take the road less travelled when it comes to their high prized collaborations throughout the years, but they've really outdone themselves this time by using the Brooks Chariot as the basis of their newest colab offering. Released in 1982, the Chariot featured the Brooks' newest innovation in running shoes; the innovative Diagonal Rollbar (DRB) technology was a breakthrough in motion-control, preventing excessive pronation at the ankle joint, a precursor to the future innovations coming out of the Brooks camp in the years ahead. Concepts have applied a deep red/sky blue/navy tricolour combination over the supple suede upper over a simple white midsole, creating a tasteful collaboration that would no doubt put the Chariot on the map for collaborators moving forward. Available from Concepts on September 13th.
