For Spring 2015, New Balance will debut the New Balance CRT300 Vintage Club Collection. Drawing inspiration from timeless New England tennis, the Vintage Club Collection brings a relaxed look to a heritage tennis silhouette. The New Balance CRT300 Vintage Club Collection will be released in February 2015 with a suggested retail price of $139.
The New Balance CRT300 is a retro-style court shoe from the New Balance archives that has been brought back with updated REVlite sole technology. The vintage “New England Tennis” style also includes a suede and mesh upper and a lower profile that is suitable for everyday wear.
In the early 1980s, New Balance started to expand into other categories beyond running, which included a court collection with the CT300 style. CT300 focused on four key areas – Fit, Comfort, Stability and Durability. The development of the shoe was also unique for its day as the shoe encased a gum rubber outsole within a polyurethane core and wall. The unique sole was complimented with a lightweight breathable mesh upper and extended saddle; combined with multiple widths fittings to provide a great base to launch New Balance tennis.
To spice things up, New Balance and Mighty Jaxx have joined forces to collaborate on an exclusive art figure inspired by the CRT300 Vintage Club Collection. With any purchase of the CRT300 models (CRT300BB / CRT300BN / CRT300BO) at selected stores on Saturday, 14th February 2015, the New Balance x Mighty Jaxx CRT300 figure will be available in limited numbers on a first-come-first-serve basis (while stocks last). Limited to one box set per customer.
