Let’s take a stroll down memory lane to that fateful September of 2013 when this legendary sneaker first made its grand entrance. Inspired by the illustrious $100 bill, the “C-Note” was truly a match made in sneaker heaven. Sneakerheads around the world couldn’t get enough of it.

Deon Point, the genius behind Concepts, has been tantalizing us sneakerheads on his Instagram with the possibility of this monumental comeback. In one of his posts, he hinted at an updated version of the “C-Note” with the mouthwatering tagline “Old Money.” Can you feel the saliva starting to flow? There’s even talk that the 2023 release might draw inspiration from the glorious OG model that dropped earlier this year as part of Teddy Santis’ remarkable Made In USA collection.
But hold your breath, because there’s a surprise in store. The images shared by Concepts showcase the 2013 version of the “C-Note,” but with a slight alteration in its shape. It seems like the sneaker gods have a few tricks up their sleeves. Cue the collective gasp!
