Finally, the 6.2 Concept FG is taking shape! Following the specifications and pattern corrections, the first colorway samples are made giving a first look at the future of this new boot.
Click the Read More link below for lots more pics and description of the revisions and technical changes made to the first colorway samples.
Overall, the first samples look very good. The gold SuperMicrofibre material with the croc emboss looks really amazing, and the new pattern needs only some small adjustment. The toecap pattern is adjusted to better follow the last shape, and the tongue pattern is adjusted to add a perf chevron logo on the flipover tongue, moving the "M" of the hummel word onto the tongue.
On the inside back collar lining (on the lig skin leather lining) a 6.2 Concept logo is added, to be screen printed in gold.
The biggest technical change to the pattern is the revision of the lacing system. As shown in the photo, the quarter overlays are detached from the main quarter panel, and the webbing is attached to these parts.
This special lacing system that uses webbing connection to the lasting bottom and quarter overlay flaps is designed to provide a snug cage-like fit inside the shoe, ensuring comfort and fit.
On the black colorway, the vamp material is changed from the flat looking SuperMicrofibre material to the same shiny croc emboss SuperMicrofibre used on the rear counter.
