Introduced only every five years, New Balance returns with the 1300JP. A Japanese streetwear classic setting new standards for premium running, the 1300 was the first shoe to provide full Encap sole unit which featured a responsive featured EVA core with a durable polyurethane rim. Originally released in 1985, the 1300JP was the first New Balance silhouette to feature Nubuck leather, specifically, Ultrabuck. Since then, the shoe has maintained its exclusivity and continues to be a key moment for the brand every five years.
The New Balance 1330 JP is releasing February 22nd. Enter the draw via EB Releases.
