Two made in the USA New Balance classics arrived, with the M996 which was first produced in the US in 1987. This model arrives 30 years later in a muted suede and mesh upper and looks as fresh as the day they arrived. The M1300 arrived in 1985 with a $130 price tag, which was among the priciest running shoes ever seen at the time and has since become a collector favorite. Arriving for 2017 in Steel Blue with a gray suede overlay, this M1300 has a look that has been on point for decades.
