New Balance has hooked up with Ball and Buck to collaborate on an upcoming Ball and Buck x New Balance 585 “Sporting Gentleman” release.
The design pays homage to the 20th anniversary of its Japanese-designed predecessor, the New Balance 580, and is inspired by Ball and Buck’s dedication to durable, stylish American goods.
“Our work with Ball and Buck brings two Boston-based brands together that strive to offer consumers premium, authentic, Made in USA products,” said Chris Davis, strategic business manager for New Balance Lifestyle, in a press release. “We are excited to bring back the 585 silhouette and collaborate on this prestige model with a retailer who influences, inspires and understands quality American craftsmanship, as well as the outdoor lifestyle.”
The shoe features plaid patterns, duck canvas, camouflage print and rest atop Gum rubber outsoles.
The Ball and Buck x New Balance 585 “Sporting Gentleman” will be available beginning Saturday, August 27th exclusively at Ball and Buck (144-B Newbury St.) or on ballandbuck.com. A wider release will take place on September 17th. The retail price tag is set at $240 USD.
