New Balance is set to release the sixth iteration of the 1300JP, a legendary classic that was first introduced in 1985 and is only available every five years.
The New Balance 1300 model was first released in 1985 as a technical running shoe and praised by runners for the models superior cushioning, unique grey color and authentic silhouette. After some fans expressed the cushioning as “the shoe version of a luxury car,” the model has become one of the heritage running silhouettes that represents the New Balance brand and was the catalyst for the premium series of 1000s.
The 2020 version utilizes the same Vibram outsole as the original model, and the color combination and stitch work details are as they appear on the original 1985 M1300.
