Boston celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Head of the Charles Regatta with New Balance, The Tannery, & the Lenox Hotel.

I had the special opportunity to check out the limited edition New Balance x Tannery 990 Regatta sneaker at The Tannery. Then I went to a party at the Sólás pub hosted by The Lenox Hotel to celebrate the collaboration. Victorinox Swiss Army also made a commemorative HOCR50 knife for this amazing occasion. 

Here’s what I gathered: sweet jackets, dope shoes, and 50th anniversary is big deal.

Congratulations to Eric Vassal (Sr. Product Manager at New Balance) and Fred Schoch (Executive Director of the Head Of the Charles Regatta) on this amazing celebration. And mission accomplished, gentlemen: the New Balance x Tannery 990v3 is a new addition to my arsenal and I’m going to my first HOCR.
