Tokyo Design Studio x New Balance 'R_C1300TF' - #TheCrew Background Check

You won't get an extremely far-fetched history lesson from me about New Balance and Tokyo Design Studios. No, I'm just giving you the facts about these two "collaborators" in a nutshell. Let's go:

Maybe some of you wonder why I already put the term "collaborators" in quotation marks above. If not, okay haha. But there was a reason for that. Because what is probably recognized here as two brands and is also represented by the typical "x", which normally separates two or more actors, does not describe a collab as you know it. Because Tokyo Design Studio is not a separate brand. Simply put, this name describes the New Balance Design Studio team from Tokyo, who had their fingers in the pie when designing this model.

"New Balance's Tokyo Design Studio is all about combining performance technology and contemporary design in a simple way that remains true to its sporting heritage."

END. Clothing

Tokyo Design Studio x New Balance 'R_C1300TF' - The details

First launched in 1985, the New Balance 1300 was a legendary running shoe, thanks to its lightweight, durable upper and extremely comfortable "Abzorb" midsole. Despite this, we all unfortunately did not have the pleasure of celebrating many releases of this silhouette in the near past. We cannot explain to you or to ourselves why the US sporting goods manufacturer has not given us any new color schemes for the New Balance 1300. But anyway, we are all the more pleased that it seems that things will be looking up again this year with the 1300! ??

Now we can even look forward to a modernised version of the Silhouette. New Balance's Tokyo Design Studio focused on incorporating high performance technology and contemporary design. The first step was to expand the stock of the standard version of the 1300. Instead of the conventional ENCAP midsole, no technology was spared here. Both shoes have been fitted with the modern, two-piece Abzorb and Encap midsole from New Balance! This means comfort at the highest level!

Now let's move on to the upper:

The color scheme of Tokyo Design Studio x New Balance 'R_C1300TF' shows an asymmetrical color scheme of the two shoes. In other words, both shoes basically have the same color blocks, but in different placement with a few exceptions. First, each shoe starts with a soft, oatmeal-colored mesh base, which is reinforced by a navy blue mudguard. From here on, each shoe is already changing into different colored quarter panels. The right one shines in a bright mustard yellow and the left one in light pastel green. On the heel and tongue labels a veg-tan leather was used to achieve a touch of luxury. A black insole with the Tokyo Design Studio branding completes the look.
