New Balance’s heritage in the Northeast has been more and more important in the brand’s collections as of late, with a particular patriotic air swirled in thanks to the efforts from the likes of CNCPTS. Another Boston based shop, Ball and Buck, is deepening that range with a pair that does the American history thing in a more roundabout way. The New Balance 574 (made in USA of course) shown is a tribute to the year of American gaining its independence, with a slim 176 pairs produced as a nod to 1776. The colorup furthers the Revolutionary War theme, sporting some hunter orange and camo sections and even being packaged in a vintage bullet box. Click through to get all the shots and keep in mind that Ball and Buck will be dropping this project next Thursday, September 27th instore and the day after online.
