Hand-crafted in Flimby comes the latest NB reissue of one of their earliest models the CT300 which is also the first ‘Made in the UK’ heritage shoe made over here by New Balance. Arriving on the scene in the early eighties the CT300 was designed as part of a court collection with the help of tennis greats Roy Emerson and Virginia Wade. Back then most tennis shoes were all about the outsole grip but the CT300 was different, it focused on four key areas – Fit, Comfort, Stability and Durability. Add to this it’s encased rubber outsole within a polyurethane core and lightweight breathable mesh upper it provided a great launch pad for New Balance tennis in the 1980s. They still look pretty on point now don’t they?
