New Balance Adds "Summer Fog" & "Mallard Blue" to RC_1300 Lineup
The retro style receives tonal treatment.
Having announced the release date for its anticipated collaborative 992 shoe with JJJJound, New Balance has now unveiled two new iterations of the RC_1300. A combination of the label’s traditional 1300 upper with a new ENCAP Reveal sole unit, the silhouette is a must-have for those looking for retro, classic styles.
“Summer Fog” is a soft-toned grey shade, while “Mallard Blue” boasts a dark blue-green palette. Both shoes arrive with a mesh base and nubuck overlays, maintaining a consistent monochromatic scheme throughout. Signature “N” logos are placed on the sides in contrasting white or navy hues. Highlighting the silhouette, an RC_1300 tag is found on the tongue, while an ENCAP midsole gives the shoe a chunky look with a toothed black outsole.
Take a closer look at New Balance’s RC_1300 in “Mallard Blue” and “Summer Fog” below. The sneakers will be arriving at Japanese retailers like atmos at the end of the month, priced at ¥22,000 JPY (approximately $206 USD).
