New Balance Japan took the 1300 and dressed it fully in plaid fabrics, to celebrate the 14th anniversary of their online store. This upcoming 997, whose “Plaid Pack” design features many of the same elements as the release since it has been inspired by it, even though it seemed to be a one-off.
The main distinctions, include the plaids themselves. Here, the toe features a darker tartan and the collar a light check, both bearing shades of black, tan, and red throughout their stripes. Flatter, and more robust panels of suede outfit the rest of the upper, going from burgundy to black and then to a muted blue. The latter, though relatively unpronounced next to the aforementioned, complements the tongue better, whose windowpane pattern makes use of the very same cool tone.
In parallel, natural leather trims, and boldly-colored “N” logos, the pair is a perfect sequel to the same-named 1300. A release, which is likely exclusive to Japan, is set for tomorrow, February 18th.
