The 1300 JP has always held a special place in the hearts of New Balance fanatics. In addition to the premium build, what made the shoe so coveted was its rarity. Aside from a one-time stateside launch in 2010, the model had been previously available exclusively to the Japanese market. And now following the announcement that the hallowed silhouette will make its triumphant return in 2015, we get a detailed look at the mesh and nubuck goodness that’s set to hit store shelves. Reissued with the classic Vibram outsole (and a rumored $300 price tag), the New Balance 1300 JP will be available soon through select New Balance retailers, including Philly’s UBIQ.
