As with any performance athletic shoe, the original 1300 was eventually replaced by even more current technology. Although New Balance would keep the 1300 around in an altered form, the 1300CL, featuring a 577 outsole, the original 1300 wouldn’t see its first reissue until 1995. Since then, the 1300 has like a celestial object or rare animal, only revealed itself to the world once every five years.
Unless the thought of saving up four figure dollar amounts and praying that the polyurethane on a deadstock pair holds up, rejoice, because 2020 marks the quinquennial return of the New Balance 1300JP. Although subtle tweaks based on the state of the art are made to the design of each reissue, the Made in the USA quality and original details are a constant. The 2020 edition of the 1300JP features the addition of Horween leather, Vibram soles and an old-school, blue and white box design, complete with limited edition branded dust bag.
