Since its founding, New Balance’s Tokyo Design Studio has offered some of the most energetic releases in the brand’s entire past year. From mouth-watering collaborations with Snow Peak and AURALEE to a series of modified classics, the sub-imprint has yet to miss even with the arrival of their latest project: the R-C1300. Lying much closer to home than their past creations, the newcomer boasts a design that is essentially unaltered relative to its 1300 inspiration. The upper adorns with quite a few panels of high quality suede, with supporting finishes of maximally perforated mesh toe boxes and natural leather heel tabs. But more importantly, the pair applies a vibrantly asymmetric color blocking which alternates the light aqua blues and mustard yellows that can be found on both sides. Toe caps, laces, and adjacent unders, however, prefer to stay consistent. Grab a detailed look at these right here and find them at select retailers come April 25th.
In other news, the New Balance 850 is getting a pastel pink colorway.
