New Balance and Concepts Launch the Freedom Trail Collection

Boston-based New Balance announces the next collection from the brand’s Partnership Program – The Freedom Trail® Collection– designed and developed in tandem with venerable sneaker shop, Concepts, in Cambridge, MA.

Featuring two silhouettes from New Balance’s USA team, The Freedom Trail® Collection re-introduces the classic 1500 sneaker and launches the first ever 875 boot.

Inspired by one of Boston’s most celebrated landmarks, The Freedom Trail®, the collection pays homage to the shared importance of historic Boston as both New Balance and Concepts share headquarters in this New England city. With a nod to the Freedom Trail®’s red footpath and the brown brick of Boston’s antiquated North End neighborhood, the shoes came to life in premium brown leather and red accents.
The 1500 is a heritage New Balance style originally built domestically back in 1989. The 1500 was originally built as a fully-loaded technical running shoe. The 875 is a brand new style launched to the public for the first time via the Concepts Collection. The boot was designed for comfort and durability. Each shoe within the collection will feature an all-leather hangtag embossed with “NB for Concepts” along with a red insert bearing the same tag.
