1985 was the year when the flagship model of New Balance first born. The unparalleled ENCAP cushioning system, the original silhouette and the characteristic grey colour made the technical running shoe M1300 highly praised by runners and sportswear lovers, hence became the flagship of the brand. First replica 1300JP was introduced in 1995 and since then a new generation of 1300JP was launched once every 5 years with some modifications. And this year, the 6th generation of 1300JP will be available later in this month.
Inheriting the supreme features of M1300, the classic grey colour scheme and superior durable VIBRAM sole from Italy were retained. The Nubuck suede used on upper panel has been upgraded to Horween leather for a more genuine and luxurious touch. Same as those previous generations, this 1300JP 2020 is designed by Japan and produced by the factory in Maine, USA.
New Balance has already officially announced the global launch of 1300JP will be on 22th February. As only a limited quantity will be available worldwide, Hong Kong fans can register at www.newbalance.com.hk for online lottery of ordering between 21st to 25th February.
