Key Features: Levi’s puts its spin on the New Balance 1300 by using legendary American textile factory White Oak’s Cone Mills White Oak XX52 denim as the base of the sneaker’s upper. The White Oak XX52 denim is also used to produce Levi’s 501 jeans. The sneaker also features Levi’s Two Horse patch-tan suede overlays and leather detailing on the “N” logo and on the heel.
Release Date: March 26 (delayed to April 24)
Editor’s Notes: Having relaunched its famous 1300JP model to much fanfare, New Balance has teamed up with ubiquitous jeans brand Levi’s on a denim-clad version of the same sneaker, the Levi‘s x New Balance M1300CL. The Cone Mills White Oak XX52 denim, which is used as the base of the sneaker’s upper, has increased in rarity since White Oak’s closing, making this a limited release made of limited edition materials.
The sneaker was supposed to be released on March 26, though that was delayed to April 24 due to coronavirus.
