Due to unforeseen circumstances, the release of the CNCPTS x New Balance 999 “The Kennedy” has been postponed. Originally slated to release on April 2nd, Concepts has announced that the sneakers will now release on April 16th, due to unexpected issues overseas that have delayed the delivery of the sneakers.
Designed by Frank Rivera of Concepts, known throughout the sneaker community as Frank the Butcher, “The Kennedy” is a tribute to the late President John F. Kennedy and the desire he had for sailing New England’s coast, featuring a sporty, nautical-inspired theme thats ready to hit the high waters. Since Concepts and New Balance both rest in the Boston area, there could be no two better brand’s to collaborate on such a sneaker. If you’re not from the Boston area and you can’t make it out to Concepts to pick the sneakers up, the shop will be accepting phone orders on April 18th starting at Noon, given all the sneakers are bought over the weekend. Retail will be $150.
