The 1300 is an iconic silhouette, consistently associated with quality, durability, and versatility. This year, New Balance released the first 1300 ever to feature a nubuck vamp, as they have always utilized mesh. Taking things a step further for their "American Authors" Collection, New Balance redesigns the 1300 by way of a high quality denim vamp. This indigo denim is further complemented by navy nubuck overlays, which feature white contrast stitching as a tasteful detail. Premium wrinkled brown leather is seen on the heel tab, "N"-logos, and tongue label, which truly solidifies this model as one of the highest grade 1300's to ever release. Brown laces and a translucent navy outsole are the finishing touches on this beautiful execution. The New Balance ML1300 "American Authors" - Denim is available now at the New KITH Shop and online at KithNYC.com.
