Concepts and New Balance have linked up to release another new collaboration. The silhouette of choice is the Made in U.K. 991.5 and it is inspired by Lake Havasu.
Celebrating the transatlantic partnership between Concepts and New Balance’s Flimby, U.K. production facility, the project is inspired by the bizarre story of an American businessman relocating the London Bridge to Lake Havasu, Arizona, as a tourist attraction. As far as appearance and materials go, the Concepts x New Balance Made in U.K. 991.5 Lake Havasu features premium suede and nubuck teal upper, reflective hits on the high-quality mesh tongue, heel tab, and “N” logo, a white midsole with gold and tan panel highlights, gum outsole, three colors of shoelaces, special Concepts lace lock, and custom box.
Manufactured in Flimby, England, this collaboration represents the final installation in a year-long partnership between Concepts and New Balance, spread across seven different releases, all with extensive back-stories.
The Concepts x New Balance Made in U.K. 991.5 Lake Havasu will retail for $250 and be available in men’s sizes 7-13, on Friday January 19, 2018 at 11:00am (EST), on CNCPTS.com. This will be an online only release.
