After the special-edition sneaker was revealed recently, New Balance‘s upcoming Made-in-Japan 1300 has now received a closer look. The sneaker has been created to mark the opening of the T-HOUSE concept store in Tokyo, as well as celebrating 35 years since the highly sought-after sneaker was first introduced in 1985.
The 1300 is constructed from premium textures, including an upper stitched together by artisan shoemakers and constructed from Japanese steerhide leather and durable nylon. The top-quality leather is also used for the sneaker’s liners and insoles, while a white EVA midsole and black Vibram outsole guarantee cushioning and comfort. The 1300 comes in the silhouette’s classic grey and blue color palette.
Take an up-close look at the New Balance Made-in-Japan 1300 in the gallery above. The sneaker will launch via a raffle on HBX beginning on July 13 and will be priced at $630 USD, reflecting its premium construction.
