Match Your Shoes To Your Bag With New Balance's Genius (& Rugged) Collab

We may not be the most in tune with nature, but that certainly doesn't mean we don't appreciate the great outdoors. While living in the Big Apple doesn't lend itself to activities like camping (or glamping), we still like to take a hike now and then — even if it's of the urban variety, i.e. climbing out to the fire escape. And, New Balance's new collab with Herschel Supply Company (our favorite purveyor of cool canvas duffles and backpacks) is the perfect solution — it's a collection for the city-loving dude who has a bit of a rugged side.
The line, which features sneakers and backpacks, is all about style-meets-utility — think hiking boot silhouettes complimented by a preppy paisley print, all made with New Balance's signature high quality materials. Bonus: The weekend-ready duffle has a special pocket custom-fit to hold the kicks — because we know you'll be getting heavy-duty mud on your soles, right? The shoes will be available online at retailers like Barneys and Urban Outfitters, so you know you're getting high style, erm, to boot. Check out pics of our favorite picks from the collection, and start mapping out your trails.
