The Ball and Buck x New Balance 585 Gives Its Take on the "Sporting Gentleman"
The classic silhouette gets an outdoorsy makeover.
Boston’s very own, New Balance, has teamed up with Ball and Buck for an exclusive pair of sneakers that will surely turn heads of all outdoor enthusiasts. The Ball and Buck x New Balance Made in USA 585 “Sporting Gentleman” design is an homage to the 20th anniversary of its Japanese-designed predecessor, the New Balance 580, which also takes inspiration from Ball and Buck’s stylish American goods. The imprint’s aesthetics can be found throughout the design with its signature plaid canvas on the vamp and collar, as well as the duck canvas placements on the underlays and insert label. Premium leather touches on the ‘N’ logo, tongue and collar add to the shoe’s overall outdoorsy look. Starting August 27, the shoes will be available for purchase exclusively at Ball and Buck’s Boston store as well as online. Global sales will begin on September 17 for $238 USD.
