Lovers of American folklore are going to want to put the New Balance Paul Bunyan on their Christmas wishlist. New Balance has given the M574 a lumberjack-inspired makeover that is sure to please both American loggers and hipsters alike.

The New Balance Paul Bunyan is all-American with a workmen-like brown colorway and "USA" printed on the back of the heel. What makes this shoe truly lumberjack is its plaid interior lining. The plaid lining is sure to be a favorite of both lumberjacks and followers of fashion, meshing nicely with the shoes red on brown color scheme. The Paul Bunyan is currently available for the price of $100. Here's hoping they release a Babe the Blue Ox set of shoes to go along with the Bunyans.
