Another Look at the Levi’s x New Balance 1300Release: 24 April 2020
Despite the disappointing news that the Levi’s x New Balance 1300 collaboration is delayed until April 24, here is some consolation. Australian boutique Up There have shared with Sneaker Freaker an in-depth gallery of the denim-toed sneakers.
Pay particular attention to the custom Levi’s For Feet branding, and the special edition orange shoebox. Other subtleties include a White Oak label hidden behind the leather-lined tongue that nods to the deadstock Cone Mills denim the upper is made from. The sections that aren’t denim are set in some of the hairiest suede NB have used in a long time. According to text on the shoebox, it references the raw surface behind Levi’s leather waist patches.
If all goes to plan, they will release on April 24. Thanks to Up There for the preview.
