Concepts x New Balance Trail Buster

Boston-based New Balance Athletics, Inc. and Concepts join forces to debut a new silhouette in the New Balance Lifestyle portfolio, the Trailbuster Re- engineered. Featuring a reimagined, modernized silhouette, the Trailbuster Re-engineered is based on the classic New Balance 90’s trail running shoe, the Trailbuster, and blends performance technology with premium lifestyle materials for a silhouette made for the urban explorer. The Concepts x New Balance “Night Trail” will launch on February 6 exclusively at Concepts Boston, Concepts New York and for a suggested retail price of $135.00. 

A modern take on the hiking aesthetic, which is engrained in New Balance’s history as a performance brand. For this reason, the style utilizes materials that enable practical use of the model on the trails or the sidewalk. The upper is done in reflective textile and metallic close-knit mesh with a reflective New Balance FantomFit welded skin. The upper also includes reflective eyelets and metallic embroidery on the tongue label. Outdoor detailing includes heel webbing and a woven Concepts-branded lace. The style offers a red Concepts-branded insert, hangtag, limited- edition Concepts packaging and multiple trail-inspired lace options.
