The New Balance 2002R Returns in Two Essential Colorways for Summer 2021

First released in 2010, the New Balance 2002 was further updated last year to coincide with the wider release of the 2002R. Now a steady favorite of runners and global New Balance admirers, the 2002R has become increasingly popular in recent seasons, hosting collaborations from the likes of Salehe Bembury and thisisneverthat.

The 2002R leans well into the aesthetic of the time, without overdoing it. Its distinctly retro appeal hints towards the “Dad shoe” trend while simultaneously serving as an elegant extension to it.

​Featuring a supply leather upper, the New Balance 2002R features an ABZORB SBS midsole and cushioned heel for unbeatable comfort, while the design’s Stability Web and N-Ergy sole supports the arch and absorbs shock. The perfect all-day/all-year sneaker, the 2002R offers itself as a wardrobe staple for those looking for something at the intersection of aesthetic and performance.
