The New Balance 2002R has been on fire since the “Protection” pack launched last Summer. Now, New Balance has more exciting releases in store, like this “Sweet Caramel” suede version that launched overseas last week.

Since its launch in 2020, the New Balance 2002R has remained a spectacularly popular sneaker amongst sneakerheads and everyday wearers alike. Featuring turn-of-the-century aethestics and a healthy mix of subtle and loud colorways as well as exciting collaborations, the 2002 has quickly become a staple of the NB lineup. This week, the vintage runner gained another addition to its growing family, this time decorating the shoe in a “Sweet Caramel” colorway. The look begins with a steel grey base layer before adding slightly off-white shaded mid-layers. The shoe’s outermost suede overlays come in the namesake Caramel tone, while 3M New Balance ‘N’s and heel counters complete the look.


New Balance’s latest in-line colorway of the 2002R runner has not yet been announced for release, though we are expecting them to surface in the coming weeks. The retro-styled silhouette will eventually find its way to stateside shelves via the New Balance website alongside secondary retailers, with a price tag of approximately $150. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
