Concepts x New Balance - The Kennedy
"For those of you who do not know I am actually a huge sneaker fan. I saw these over at www.sneakerfreaker.com (great site for new releases). I LOVE New Balance and these definitely went to the top of my NB wish-list."
"This would have to be the first sneaker in the history of mankind ever inspired by a dead politician! Frank Rivera at Concepts in Cambridge has given us the scoop on his nifty New Balance 999s, which were designed to reflect President John F. Kennedy's love for New England's sailing history. Trimmed in classical red, white and blue (with tan highlights), there's a host of tiny details including nylon paneling and CNCPTS flag logos, and the shoes come with a mesh bag that should be ideal to drain anything that tips overboard."

Jeremy Scott x Adidas - Teddy Bears
Reuters - Twisted fashion designer Jeremy Scott was arrested after being seen with the decapitated heads of the cute and cuddly [and recently missing] Snuggle Bear twins. He was reportedly wearing them on his feet.
"OK that's not true but these things are still pretty weird. Although, I honestly had to think twice about if I'd ever consider buying these. I didn't think very long, but I had to think about it."
