One of the most expensive New Balance models is the M1300 in which it received a Retro dealing in celebration of the 1000 series. It first released in 1985 and now it is back bringing the nice side of its running features. For comfort and lightweight, the New Balance 1300JP Retro uses mesh-nylon with a mixture of nubuck and soft leather. The featured colorway comes in Grey/Teal with White accent.
Based on a 1985 model, the Japanese-designed (but still U.S.-made) reproduction is sold every five years in limited runs, 20 of which will be available at J.Crew’s Liquor Store, 235 West Broadway at White Street, for $300.
