This weekend's CNCPTS x Nike Free Trainer 1.0 is a color-changing affair, featuring tongues that will react to heat with a pattern matching the upper's thermal look.
The shoe, a 20th anniversary project for Concepts, steers away from the store's typical territory in retro SB releases and instead uses a Training silhouette. The shoe is inspired by sport science and thermal reactive cameras, hence the colorful print on the upper and insole.
Branding here is relatively minimal – the store gets a shoutout on the tongues and insoles only.
Watch for the CNCPTS x Nike Free Trainer 1.0 to release on Saturday, Jan. 16, at all Concepts locations.
