New Balance 1300 “Made in USA” – Teal – Silver
One of the latter-day collaborations from the ALIFE Rivington Club was a duo of American-made New Balance 1300s that flipped their teal/white distribution. This new in-house effort is sure to draw comparisons to the greener of those two, as aside from the A.R.C. tongue logo, these are very close to that well-regarded collab. In fact, they’ve traded the striped tongue tag for another kind of visual flourish in the speckled ENCAP section on the rear of the midsole, which if you’re partial to that look, might make these even better than Alife’s. The more significant part is also that these are about to be readily available at your favorite NB retailers, so stick with Sneaker News for updates as we approach what looks like an April launch.
