Keeping an eye on Cambridge, MA-based Concepts has proven to be well worth the trouble since they’ve been responsible for perhaps the best New Balance releases over the last two years. A Fall/Winter collaborative release between the two Northeast-based entities looks to be in the works because Rhett Richardson, Brand Director and Designer for Concepts, revealed this Fall/Winter 2013 sample of the New Balance 998 as part of his Hypebeast Essentials feature. Featuring a slick combination of a cool and minty sea green, accents of a rich beige tone, and customized insoles, this upcoming CNCPTS x New Balance 998 should strike forcefully when it eventually drops in the coming months. Stay tuned for release information and updates and let us know if these are in your radar.

The upcoming CNCPTS x Asics Gel Lyte III project is finally brought into better focus. As you can see, the shoes have much more going on than just the blocked off toe that’s been earning them some comparisons to other collab Asics of old out there. Also on deck is a splattering along the midsole and some graphic print laces, a couple of details that presumably push them forward towards the likeness of their Johan Harvard statue inspiration. Take a full look at the upcoming CNCPTS x Asics Gel Lyte III “Three Lies” release and stay tuned to Sneaker News for in depth info on this 2013 release.

Update: The CNCPTS x Asics Gel Lyte III “Three Lies” pair pictured is an early, sample version of the shoe. The final version, which has yet to be fully revealed, sports some differences in colors from this sample. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for updates.

It looks like the Asics Gel Lyte III will be getting a little bit more stateside love, as CNCPTS up in Boston has apparently been granted an SMU. The resulting sneaker is shown here, one that will no doubt garner a couple of comparisons to Ronnie Fieg’s “Salmon Toe” creation of old thanks to the blocking. The design is far from a ripoff though, planting a slick speckling sole across the bottom and throwing some rather rugged looking suede up top. Continue reading for the full preview and stay tuned to Sneaker News to find out more on the upcoming CNCPTS x Asics Gel Lyte III project.

CNCPTS has always been one to draw on their immediate surroundings when it comes to sneaker collaborations. Their next up release is no different, as the Vans Syndicate Sk8-Hi Pro ‘Combat Zone’ draws from a seedy area of Boston that is now a distant memory. They’ve resurrected the red light district with this pair, which sports laser etched graphics on the sides, plenty of plush pink, and a naughty logo on the back end.
