Happy birthday, Willie Nelson. Today is the outlaw country star and renowned marijuana advocate's 81st birthday. To celebrate, the folks over at New Balance dug out a custom pair of 496s that were made for Nelson. The sneaker sports Nelson's signature across the toe, but it is also signed by him on the toebox.

A New Balance made for Willie Nelson: Does it get anymore American than that? It's just a shame these didn't come with a hemp upper.
