Concepts x New Balance CM496 ‘Pool Blue’ Review
Description
A staple collaboration in the sneaker world that produces great pieces is between Concepts and New Balance. Taking a cue from the popular boating color schemes and events of Charles River in Boston, the Concepts x New Balance CM496 ‘Pool Blue’ comes with a super bright red and turquoise cow suede upper, shadowy waters insole design, and marked midsole over a gum sole. We think the patterned red and turquoise laces provide a striking contrast against the plain colors, and the NB brandings are seamlessly placed on the tongue, back heel, and sole.

One look at the Concepts x New Balance CM496 ‘Pool Blue’ and we are immediately impressed by the vibrant red, white, and teal colorways. A nod to the nautical flags during the boat races in Boston’s Charles River, these kicks are made from cow suede upper, perforated toe box, and responsive gum sole.
