New Balance RC 1300: A Tokyo Design Studio's masterpiece

The Tokyo Design Studio was conceived from the combined creative minds of New Balance American and Japanese squads. Since its inception, this NB sub-label has released several remarkable silhouettes that have caused massive interest from numerous fans and buyers.

One of the latest releases is the New Balance RC 1300. This iteration is the recrafted (hence the abbreviation RC) version of the New Balance 1300 by combining it with the new-aged chunky midsole technology. It is covered with top-notch quality materials with an unrivaled finish, consistent with how the New Balance brand is known for.

Exciting details about the NB RC_1300:

There are few elements why this sneaker creates an astonishing vibe:

  • It is made with the ever functional Vibram rubber sole with hiking-inspired lugs for better traction and style.
  • The midsole is segmented on the heel area, exposing the soft cushioning. This combination of technologies creates a bouncy feel but with a bit of firmness with every step.
  • The ridged plastic heel cap holds the feet securely while adding style.
  • The smooth suede overlays on its upper and the soft leather on its lining give a luxurious feel and finish.
