Concepts x New Balance M997.5 ‘Esplanade’ Review
Using the lifestyle surrounding the Charles River in Boston as inspiration, the Concepts x New Balance M997.5 ‘Esplanade’ is the continuation of the two brands’ 2017 partnership. Featuring grey synthetic leather upper with teal mesh on toe box and collar, as well as yellow pig suede tongue, we think the color combination works well, especially when combined with reflective silver spots. These details all sit atop an ABZORD cushioning and sole technology, completed with a Concepts branded insole.

The Concepts x New Balance M997.5 ‘Esplanade’ is inspired by the vibe around Boston’s Charles River. Sporting a light grey color base with hints of teal and yellow, these kicks are made from synthetic leather, pigskin suede, and mesh. Crafted on top of ABZORB technology, the reflective silver spots are a nice final touch that elevates these trainers’ look and feel.
