Built on the classic New Balance M1300 silhouette, the ARC collection celebrates a heritage style that was first introduced in 1985 as a premium technical running shoe. The 1300 features simple patterns, a long tip, one piece saddle and a PU Encap outsole for comfort. Designed to evoke the archetypical 1980s jogger, the ARC collection is available in three material and color combinations-teal/grey, all-over teal and white with small teal pops of color. “The materials selected follow our core classic Made-in-the-USA heritage. Pig suede on the tip, saddle, and foxing plus jacquard knit meshes are the staples used on many of our domestically-made classics” stated Steve Cusick, product developer for New Balance.
The collection has been produced in the USA and will be available exclusively at Alife stores and at rivingtonclub.com as of midnight January 23rd. They retail for 165 USD.
