We're not sure you'd actually want to go hunting in them — boots seem somehow more appropriate — but should you want to, these New Balance x Ball and Buck 574 Sneakers ($150) have you covered. The result of a collaboration between the two pro-USA companies, the sneakers feature New Balance's typical grey upper accented with Ball and Buck's signature camo in 10oz duck cloth, and finished off with blaze orange on the heel tab and footbed. An extra bonus for early adopters: the first 176 pairs will come in a vintage 50 caliber ammo can with a hand-stamped numbered brass plate. [Scouted by Rob]
Don't let their relative plain exteriors fool you — the new line of Vans LXVI Footwear ($70-$125) is the company's most advanced ever. Created without the limitations of traditional construction methods, the new line was designed for the future, and includes the Graph — the lightest Vans shoe ever — the Stat high-top, the mid-top Secant, the low Inscribe, and the boot-like Module. Nearly all of them feature new, more naturally-moving WaffleFlex outsoles, UltraCush Lite cushioning, and plenty of style.
Purveyors of notable bags, cases, and wallets Hard Graft are expanding their business downward. To your feet.

Great for upscale casual events, or just everyday wear.
