The New Balance 1300 debuted in the mid-80's as the most expensive running shoe on the market at $130.  Though it's not an ideal high-tech running shoe at this point, it is still a premium casual shoe option.  This quality-constructed Made in America edition of the M1300 sees a navy leather and grey mesh upper, with red accents including the rich suede "N" logo.  Those unable to acquire the recent Ronnie Fieg "Salmon Sole" edition of the M1300 may want to give these a look.

The Made in America New Balance M1300 Navy/Red is available now at select New Balance retailers, including online from Crooked Tongues.
