ball and buck’s collaboration with new balance is back, but this time they’re in “mountain green.”  hmm.  mountain green, eh?  interesting color choice.  i missed out on the grey ones in september and was looking forward to the second chapter of this collaboration.  i figured they’d stick with grey.  in all honesty, i’m not loving these.  the orange really throws me off.  it looks good on the grey kicks, but it’s a stretch here.  these will be available christmas day at ball and buck’s store as well as online.  what do you think about the new colorway?  would you drop $149 for a pair?  i might, but only because i missed the boat on the first ones.

new kicks on the cheap

as mentioned a couple of times on to take the train, new balance is one of my favorite shoe brands.  you know you’re getting comfort and quality when you purchase a pair of new balance shoes.  lately they’ve been putting out a lot of collaborations and special versions of their popular models to please the sneaker heads and the casual fan.  (ps ball and buck if you read this blog, please hook me up with camo 574s.  i will be your best friend forever.)  not necessarily lost in all of the hype is the classic 574 which you can find pretty much anywhere for under $60.  i was close to pulling the trigger on a new pair of 1400s from j. crew as well as some of the new 998s from kith, but since it’s the holiday season and i shouldn’t be spending money on myself, i went with a cheap pair of 574s from zappos for $51.  i know you’ve seen nb 574s thousands of times, but these look too good not to mention.
