The New Balance 300 certainly isn't appreciated as much as the brand's classic running silhouettes.

The result of that is that pairs can come and go without the usual outlets taking notice, which very nearly was the case with this CRT300 release. While the shoe is fairly straightforward in terms of its materials, it's actually a collaboration with Urban Research of Japan (a peek at the insoles reveals their involvement).

The good news for anyone that's just getting on board with the sneaker is that a release in the U.S. is coming this weekend. Accounts including Premier will release the Urban Research x New Balance 300 on Saturday, Feb. 21 for $90.
