New Balance continues to iterate on their fan-favorite 2002R runner, this time building out a small collection with the ‘Good Vibes’ pack. Seen here in electric green, this pair calls back to a 2012 collaboration with Kawasaki.

Remember the 2012 Kawasaki 993? New Balance certainly does. Now ten years old, the highly sought-after project took inspiration from the moto brand’s bold colorways, applying them to the retro-styled runner through an electric green colorway. New Balance is rehashing the look a decade later, through a special release of the recent 2002R silhouette. Dubbed a part of the ‘Good Vibes’ pack, this project will likely see more colorways added as we edge closer to a release. For now, we have a good look at the pack’s take on the eye-catching look, which begins with a black mesh base layer for the 2002. White mid-layers separate the underlay from the neon green suede outer pieces, while a grey interior lining rounds out the upper. TPU New Balance ‘N’ logos add a hint of a synthetic look, and a mixed grey and black midsole completes the look.


New Balance’s upcoming bold green colorway of the 2002R has not yet been announced for release, though we are expecting them to launch sometime in Summer of 2022. Part of the rumored ‘Good Vibes’ pack, this pair will be available directly from New Balance with a price tag of $150. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more NB release news.
