Korean streetwear brand thisisneverthat has been teaming up with New Balance on a regular basis, delivering exciting iterations of some of our favorite shoes. This week, TINT teased a 2002R in cool grey tones, coming this Fall.

Back in 2020, New Balance revived their 2002R runner, which originally debuted in 2010 as a follow-up to the popular 2001 running shoe. Revitalized as a lifestyle model, NB tapped a number of their frequent collaborators to help relaunch the sneaker, working with brands like INVINCIBLE, Salehe Bembury, Randomevent, and thisisneverthat. Since then, TINT has continued to work with the Boston footwear brand on annual releases, the latest of which they teased on their Instagram earlier this week. Once again featuring the 2002R, the new colorway pits the shoe in shades of light grey, broken up by darker accents along the toes and collars that appear to be in navy blue. The midsoles also feature several blue hits, while white soles and inner linings complete the look.
