Who doesn't like escaping the consuming confines of the big city for the open-air of the great outdoors? New Balance are all for those weekend getaways, celebrating the time we get to escape with the the 'Distinct Weekender' 990. Inspired by the humbled waved canvas backpack – an essential part to any outdoor adventure - these feature a combination of Horween leather and suede across the upper, dabble of mesh in the overlays, and keeping things el natural, vegetable leather embellishments through-out. Looking absolutely beautiful in these photos, we're not quite sure how well those premium materials will hold up in the great outdoors, but let's be real, sneakers are for wearing. Hit up Sneaker Politics to get yourself laced.
