ABOUT

In 1985, New Balance introduced a performance running shoe with ENCAP® technology designed for cushioning and stability – The M1300. As a flagship style, The M1300 launched the premium 1000 series and soon became recognized by running and street wear enthusiasts alike.

Since its original introduction, The M1300 has been reissued five times – 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015. In celebration of its 30th anniversary, the latest reissue is almost an exact replica of the original design, from it stitching details to the Vibram® outsole.

The M1300 reissue also embodies the American-made quality New Balance began more than 75 years ago.

Join us as we proudly celebrate this iconic shoe.
