One of the most popular silhouettes from New Balance's Made in USA classic footwear lineup, the 1300 is given a fairly radical new look courtesy of Cone Mills, located in Greensboro, North Carolina, and representing one of the last remaining manufacturers of selvedge denim in the United States. (Your premium 501s from Levi's Vintage Clothing? They're likely a product of Cone Mills.) This upcoming 1300 style swaps out the typical mesh base for one in washed denim, overlaid with nubuck paneling adorned with contrast with stitch detailing. A brown leather tongue tag and heel tab, as well as a matching bum rubber outsole, complete the look. Scheduled for a July 2014 release, the Cone Mills x New Balance M1300CD is available for pre-order now through END.
