CM320 reissue update

More info and release dates on this year’s reissue of the classic NB 320 courtesy of Xymon! It’s not clear whether these dates are Asia-only or worldwide though.

“The classic runner is back! Starting from April, NB drops the legendary runner that gained unprecedented fame for the brand and catapulted them to the forefront of modern athletic shoe design.
Rated #1 in Runners World 1976 for “fit” and “comfort” over Brooks, Onitsuka, adidas, Puma, Saucony etc, these shoes were found on the athletes to the common man due to the rise of the running for fitness trend around the time.
The elevated wedge and midsole combination elevates the heel and reduces shock on heel strike; the molded heel counter prevent rotation and lateral slippage, thus eliminating irritation and blistering; and of course it came in multiple widths.
It also heralded the role of Terry Heckler on the branding of New Balance: He
1) argued for the performance look of the shoe, leaving behind the “nursing home adidas look” of the Trackster;
2) stuck a huge big N on the side, slyly making people think it was a Nike; and
3) started the numbering system for the shoe model, thereby giving equal status to each shoe and not superstar treatment.

The following are the upcoming releases [release dates accurate as of print, check with your local stores/distributor for more information]”
