Concepts X New Balance 999 (Seal)
Following their brilliant ‘Kennedy' NB from 2011, Boston's Concepts have followed up with this NB999. There's a definite cross-country-military-hiking feel to these chunkers and design details abound. Topographical sockliners, cordura-mesh, stencil fonts and secretive Morse Code finesse a colourway best described as aqua profundo! Inspired by the amphibious OTB Abyss II, a shoe assigned to Navy SEALs, the SEAL 999 will be available from CNCPTS on August 4th with a matching capsule collection containing a hard-wearing Arc'teryx jacket. As seen in Senaker Freaker issue 24.
