In one of his posts, he hints at an updated version of the “C-Note” with the tantalizing tagline “Old Money.” Can you feel the drooling starting? There are even whispers that the 2023 release might draw inspiration from the glorious OG model that dropped earlier this year as part of Teddy Santis’ Made In USA collection.
But wait, there’s a surprise in store. The images shared by Concepts showcase the 2013 version of the “C-Note,” but with a slight shape alteration. It seems that the sneaker gods have some tricks up their sleeves. Cue the collective gasp!
