Great heists have been romanticized through movies, television, literature, and music, and now Boston boutique Concepts is immortalizing one of the greatest American fine art heists and a noteworthy airport robbery with their latest adidas Consortium collaboration due out this Saturday, September 3rd exclusively at both Cambridge and New York Concepts locations. (A global release at select retailers will happen the following Saturday, September 10th). The adidas EQT Boost 93/16 is the perfect combination of both old and new, as the legendary adidas EQT line teams up with the technological advancement of Boost cushioning for a supremely comfortable ride with a vintage styled upper.

The “Sage” colorway is inspired by the ‘Blue Room’ at the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts where a total of 13 paintings were stolen with a reported worth of over $500 million. No arrests were ever made despite an investigation by the FBI. The Concepts adidas Consortium EQT Support 93/16 is a work of art itself, as a premium suede and nylon upper is accented by light pink three stripe ribbons on the side panel. A perforated suede toe box adds ventilation while Concepts-branded lace jewels create a touch of luxury to match the gold Torsion bar. An all white Boost midsole unit perfectly compliments the rest of the silhouette.

The “Black/White” colorway of the Concepts adidas EQT Support 93/16 is inspired by another heist that was a major plot point in the movie Goodfellas – the Lufthansa Heist at JFK Airport in New York City where over $5 million was stolen. The heist was one of the longest investigations to ever occur, with 35 years separating the act from actual convictions. The pair keeps things simple with an elegant display of black suede and nylon throughout. A contrasting white medial side adds a unique color blocking while a multi-color adidas EQT logo is inspired by the color of the airport’s interior during the 1970s.

Only 1000 pairs of each shoe will release worldwide with sizes ranging from 4-14 on September 10th for $170 USD each. Be sure to check out more photos below and know that we’ll be getting a detailed look directly from Concepts later in the week.
