The Boston Marathon is a great time of year for sneaker lovers. It's one of those events that you never really think of and so never look forward to, but are stoked every time it comes around. Kind of like Victoria's Secret. Adding to the already sizeable amount of heat this 2016, two Bostonian brands have delivered us this ode to Beantown running.
The Concepts x New Balance 998 pictured seems to go for a patriotic approach, curving the light blues and yellows of Boston's flag and brandishing red, white and blue. The common tricolour is dyed onto premium pigskin suede and mesh, and is accompanied by a black heel counter, and various tonal hits.
The Concepts x New Balance 'Boston Marathon' is available now from Concepts in Massachusetts, and will have a wider release on April 18 at New Balance's online store.
