2017 Winner: Concepts

Sneakers from this Harvard Square staple have been hitting the streets for the past two decades. Far beyond typical trainers, high-end designs from Golden Goose, Yeezy and Puma line the sleek industrial shelves. On the heels of unveiling an Isabella Stewart Gardner shoe as part of a heist-themed line with Adidas, Concepts also released a desert-inspired collaboration with New Balance and Old Skool Vans sporting vintage Jamaican prints. They’ve even set up shop in Dubai.
