It’s pretty refreshing isn’t it to have word of a new sneaker release pop up at the beginning of the week only to have the pair available by the weeks end? Concepts’ most recent project with New Balance took that approach, skipping the long winded hype dance in favor of a cryptic announcement followed up by some official shots to prep us for the release date this weekend on Saturday, August 4th. Up next we’ve got a more up close view, showing off the the New Balance 999 ‘Seal’ and all the minute details that bring them closer and closer to their inspiration of the OTB Abyss II performance boot. Click through with us for all the angles and keep in mind that these will hit in-store at CNCPTS at 10AM this Saturday, online at CNCPTS two hours later, and apparently at some other spots around the world in the near future.
