The retro New Balance 2002R has been massively popular since its resurgence late in 2020, and now, the stylish silhouette is landing in new colorways on a regular basis. Check out this dusty purple “Night Tide” version, available now.

New Balance’s retro rehash of the 2002r silhouette has been a success several months in, with the initial release, Salehe Bembury’s Grand Canyon-inspired pair, taking home numerous ‘Best Of 2020’ awards. Now, with the initial collaborations and high-profile drops behind them, New Balance is releasing a slew of new in-line colorways over the course of the last two months. This week, the 2002 surfaced in a fresh “Night Tide” color scheme, decking out the silhouette’s suede and mesh upper in a beautiful faded purple tone, mixing in hints of teal blue and ‘au lait’ white to complete the look.


New Balance’s latest standard-issue colorway of the 2002r released earlier this week, and is currently available in a variety of sizes directly from the Boston brand’s website. The retro-styled runner in ‘Night Tide’ will run you an easy $140, with a wider release expected to roll out in the coming weeks. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
