American-focused brand Ball and Buck team with New Balance once again to bring you the 2012 Winter US574 “Mountain Green.” Following on from the “Kool Grey” edition of the US574, the “Mountain Green” follows the same design basics featuring the classic Ball and Buck camo print and 10oz duck cloth. A blaze orange heel tab and footbed add an accent of color to the sneaker that represents quintessential American hunting culture. Both brands takes pride in its commitment to domestic production with New Balance now the only company to still manufacture a selection of its athletic shoes in the USA. Ball and Buck focuses its brand on the fact that all of its garments and other products are crafted in the USA and to see the collaboration between the two is the perfect union. The “Mountain Green” US574 is only available in a very limited release with 174 pairs being released. Each pair of sneakers is complete with a hand-stamped brass number plate which indicates which of the 174 pairs you have received. The first half of the total allotment will take place on Christmas Day as it carries a price tag of $148 USD.
