New Balance is taking the highly sought after M1300 to the next level with a new variant that's made in Japan. Continuing the celebration of the style's 35th anniversary, each pair is handmade and treated like a piece of fine footwear with an upper that loses the mesh for select steerhide leathers sourced from Sanyo, one of Japan's leading tanneries. Each pair is also fitted with Vibram soles and every pair includes shoe trees to help maintain the structure of the upper.
The M1300JPJ will be exclusive to Japan and will be sold by lottery via the New Balance Japan online store and T-House New Balance in Tokyo.
