Jeremy Sallee Has Been Sketching Some Awesome Puma & Adidas Concepts

words // Nick DePaula:

Over time, Instagram has proven to not only be a platform where photographers can showcase their work to a widespread global audience, but it’s also become a growing home for artists and designers to highlight their latest concepts and ideas.

After suffering an unfortunate Achilles tear, footwear designer Jeremy Sallee has been posted up and posting a spree of sketches on his page, narrowing in primarily on new concepts for Puma Hoops and Adidas Basketball. With Puma’s grand return to the NBA and basketball space for the first time in two decades, his designs explore potential twists on bridging the brand’s past through a modernized lens.

The Adidas concepts are simply awesome, delving into some new branding options for The Three Stripes. Sallee formerly worked at Reebok, where he cooked up the recent Fusion DMX and Alpha standout models during his tenure with the vector. He’s currently the Design Director for Ralph Lauren footwear, with projects soon on the horizon.

You can keep up with Jeremy’s work and his playfully dubbed #AchillesSeries on his @jermsal10 Instagram account — best of luck with the rehab and recovery!

With the holiday season in full swing plenty of notable brands are beginning to collaborate in order to capture the retail rush that comes along with the time of the year. Two brands in particular are set to collaborate this weekend as Concepts and ASICS are opening up “Pop-Up” Shop in Miami to commemorate the re-release of the ASICS Gel Respector model. This 90s styled silhouette draws cues from the 1980s themed Miami lifestyle, full of eccentric hues and captivating style.

Nonetheless, this silhouette features premium suede throughout the upper that is canvased in shades of green, along with featuring a gum outsole and an embossed logo. Each sneaker will be packaged in a limited edition Concepts box, featuring a bill print with Concepts currency strap.

Concepts x Nike SB “Holy Grail” Pack

After the release of a mysterious teaser, Concepts and Nike SB finally reveal their collaborative “Holy Grail” pack, the biggest project to date from the longstanding relationship between the American skate shop and Nike’s skateboarding imprint. In referencing The Grail, the project presents three highly sought-after sneaker editions: the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max, the Nike SB Dunk High, and the Nike SB Dunk Low, which each come in their own special limited edition boxes.

The first sneaker of the pack appropriately takes upon the Nike SB Dunk Low silhouette, which was the first-ever model presented from the Concepts and Nike SB partnership. The Nike SB Dunk Low “Grail” features a shiny, iridescent upper, custom gold skull lacelocks, metallic silver quilted heel collar lining, a white midsole, a clear, translucent outsole, and custom branded insoles. The right shoe has a bright red tongue while the left shoe has a vibrant blue one. This is available in two limited edition Hyperstriked boxes, wood or cement, which are in-store Concepts exclusives. 100 cement and 200 wooden boxes will be available at Concepts Cambridge while 300 wooden boxes are reserved for the Concepts NYC location.

The Nike SB Dunk High “Stained Glass” is directly influenced by the stained glass art found in churches found around the world and which span over several centuries. This dynamic model is swathed in a custom-made stained glass print design across its upper, a black Swoosh logo on the side, black laces, a black tongue, custom branded Concepts insoles, and a smoky black outsole. Each shoe is created in a multiple-step process of printing leather with textured clear overlays and bonding them together to replicate the look and feel of stained glass. Each pair is unique, with no two prints having the same design in the same place. This model comes in a matching box exclusive to the silhouette that also features stained glass designs on it.

Lastly, the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max “Mosaic” renders the classic skate silhouette in a cracked-effect upper that takes inspiration from mosaic artwork, an arduous art form that dates back to ancient Mesopotamia. Each piece is meticulously hand laid in a mimicry of the tiling process of tesserae, so the upper resembles the cracking effect of mosaics. Blending faded pastels of a faded red upper, blue side paneling and green heel counter are laid over a white suede base, so the sneaker’s patina over time and wear will slowly reveal the white underlay through unique creases and cracks. A white midsole, bright blue tongue and metallic gold laces finish off the look. This model comes packaged in a custom mosaic box that features stained glass detailing in each sneaker footbed.

The Concepts x Nike SB “Holy Grail” pack will be released exclusively online and in-store at Concepts Cambridge and Concepts NYC July 25.
