For contrast, the nylon used on the tongue is woven white, pairing up nicely to the matching shoelaces. A big yellow N on the mid-foot panels instantly recalls late-1970s NB runners, namely the 355. Which, upon further inspection, seems to be what this 1300 is largely referencing.
</br></br>
uilding on the visit here standard material configuration of pig suede and mesh is a colourway that's anything but the usual. There's heavy emphasis on sandy shades of beige that comprise the majority of the uppers, but key sections are coloured black for strong contrast.

Custom touches include FY7 tongue labels in place of the regular shoe.
