Men’s fashion is always acknowledging the designs of the past. Whether it be rediscovering, redesigning or simply creating something out of an old classic, men’s fashion is nothing but respectful of its roots. The same can now be said for New Balance who have made the first heritage court shoe – the CT300 – inspired by the original 80s classic. The style, they say, “plays homage to its retro roots and keeps it traditional with signature New Balance colours: white and navy.”
The first domestically manufactured court shoe, the New Balance’s newest addition, is all about merging quality with comfort. Quality, evidently, is something New Balance takes seriously as it was tennis greats Roy Emerson and Virginia Wade who helped with the original CT300’s design.
Around that time the time tennis shoes were developed with outsole grip as the focus. It was the CT300, however, that was different and focused on fit, comfort, durability and stability. The design further showed its advance by encasing a gum rubber outsole with a polyurethane core and wall.
The CT300 heritage court shoe is full of the same technologies as its original but is packed with a delicate, newly focused touch. Wait no longer gents, run out and get these fashion essentials where they are now available at Size?, End Clothing and Hannon, retailing at £100 per shoe.
