First Look: Levi’s x New Balance 1300 Sneaker

Levi’s® and New Balance have teamed up to create a special edition Levi’s® x New Balance 1300 sneaker. Celebrating the traditional NB 1300 silhouette—which this year celebrates its 35th anniversary—the shoe is constructed using a combination of Levi’s® back patch-coloured suede and deadstock White Oak XX52 denim, which was provided by Levi’s® from their limited stockpile. The White Oak Mill, which closed its doors at the end of 2017, was one of the last manufacturers to produce selvedge denim in the US. And the New Balance 1300 is manufactured in Skowhegan, Maine – one of the five New England manufacturing facilities that New Balance owns and operates. The combination of the two makes the Levi’s® x New Balance 1300 a must-have, authentically American sneaker.

Other details include orange accents, including a Levi’s® Orange Tab on the outside left foot, a White Oak woven label on the shoe tongue, and a special hangtag with a “Levi’s® for feet” logo, inspired by graphics from the New Balance and Levi’s® archives. The Levi’s® x New Balance sneaks also come in a special edition Levi’s® for feet and New Balance® orange and tan collector’s box. And, though the collaboration with New Balance will be ongoing, the Levi’s® x New Balance 1300 will be released in a limited supply. Which makes them a guarantee to be the most coveted sneaker of the season.

The Levi’s x New Balance 1300 Sneaker drops on 26 March at New Balance Canal Walk, Shelflife and X-trend Sandton City.
