New Balance R_C MS1300TE Sneakers | workwear brown
New Balance-Tokyo Design inspired R_C MS1300TE in workwear brown
Developed in New Balance's Japanese HQ, the latest offering from New Balance blends quiet sophistication with classic design.
Like the navy edition, this MS1300TE uses a similar mix of nappy suede and dense mesh on the uppers. Also like its dark counterpart, it goes for the two-toned look, with alternating shades of ‘Workwear’ and white on the suede and mesh panels respectively. Reflective accents on the heel tab and midfoot branding tie back to the silhouette’s running origins.
The RC_1300’s upper is fairly conventional and stays true to its 1300 inspiration, but the new midsole unit is anything but old-school. It’s an ENCAP REVEAL model paired with ABZORB compound for the optimal blend of support and cushioning. This combination is also used on the similarly experimental 997S model, but the RC_1300 is slightly elevated by its use of a custom Vibram rubber tread pattern on the outsole.
