Concepts and New Balance introduce their latest sneaker project which takes its inspirations from none other than John F. Kennedy.

The fallen president's love of sailing forms the basis of the sneaker's design, with the use of sailing flags used as a motif inside the liner. Different materials also occupy the upper such as ripstop nylon, suede and mesh. These highly anticipated kicks were even featured on the front cover for Sneaker Freaker's 20th issue. Slated to drop soon on March 2011.
