For a sneaker to remain in circulation beyond its initial release requires a certain resonance with the sneakerhead set. To have a model make it through parts of four decades? That takes an impeccably timeless design like the one pictured above, 1985’s New Balance 1300CL in the original ‘Steel Blue’ colorup. This is an OG palette that makes the rounds every few years and some were lucky enough to get pairs when they released in Asia last summer. New York’s Kith has a fresh batch in stock for the time being, but act quickly if you want to get one from this full size run; additional images after the jump below detail exactly why they’ll be gone just as fast as they arrived.
