New Balance’s 2002R has taken a backseat to other popular models in recent months, but they are returning to the fold this season in fresh colors. This week, we have an early look at a new ‘Pastel’ pack, coming soon.
New Balance first debuted their 2002R in 2010, as a top-of-the-line running sneaker. The silhouette quickly went dormant, fading into the brand’s archives until its revival in 2021, which took a strong hold on the sneaker world. Since then, the Boston brand has released dozens of styles of the retro model, with plenty of collaborations to help keep it going. This week, we got an early look at a new ‘Pastel’ pack they are adding to this season’s offerings, with three fresh colorways for the model. Dressed in your choice of ‘Wet Blue’, ‘Concrete’, or ‘Sandstone’, each follows a similar color blocking, with the main tone as the mesh base and outermost layers. Mid layers come in an accent tone, grey for the blue pair, dark tan for sandstone, and cream for the grey look. Additionally, the heels on all three come in dark brown leather.
