Levis’ Takes On The New Balance 1300
words by angelyn
Commemorating the sneaker’s 35th anniversary, the New Balance x Levi’s® 1300 focuses on quality and practicality by combining the comfort of New Balance’s insoles with durable fabrics done by none other than America’s denim expert, Levi’s. If there’s a pair of sneakers that screams American, it is bound to be this pair of New Balance.
The 1300 sneaker features Levi’s Orange Tab and sees the sneaker repurposing the White Oak woven label commonly seen on Levi’s pieces. If you didn’t already know, Levis’ bid farewell to the Cone Mills White Oak in 2017, bringing an end to a long partnership between Levi’s and the North Carolina mill where they were one of the last producers of American selvedge denim.
Of course, this celebration of American craftsmanship is only available in limited supply completed with a special edition orange and tan collector’s box. Snatch your very own pair at New Balance Jewel Changi, New Balance Paragon, Limited Edt Vault 313@Somerset, Leftfoot Cathay and newbalance.com.sg from 26 March 2020.
[UPDATE: Please kindly note that the launch date for the New Balance x Levi’s® 1300 has been moved to 24 April 2020.]
