New Balance Unveils The First 1300JP USA-Made Sneaker Since 2015

Feb 5, 2020

Category: Style

Since the model’s original release in 1985, every five years New Balance has released a new, limited edition version of its 1300 shoe. And with 2020 marking the 35th year since its initial release, the Boston-based footwear outfit is continuing its bi-decade tradition with another revised version of the iconic trainers for 2020 with the 1300JP.

Designed to remain true to the original ’85 running shoes while still boasting modern materials and amenities, the 2020 version of the limited edition 1300’s feature Horween leather construction, supplemented via gray laces, blue mesh, and white leather areas. Produced in New Balance’s Maine factory, these American-made shoes also get Vibram rubber outsoles and EVA foam midsoles. Though these new 1300s are the eighth 1300s release since ’85, the 2020 versions represent the second time the company has ever officially sold these much-sought-after sneakers on US shores. Sold in a period-correct replica 1980s box and with a key-chain and soft case, the 2020 1300JP has been priced at $300 and is slated for a February 22nd release, though due to high demand, New Balance is selling the sneakers via a lottery system.

Purchase: $300
