New Balance may not have begun the unshakeable “dad” shoe trend, but it’s delivered numerous looks in the style. For its latest proposition, the Boston-based brand has outfitted its modernized New Balance 2002R with an “Atlas/Lemon Haze” colorway reminiscent of the 624’s signature look.

The mixed-materials upper boasts a predominantly white palette, with leather underlays across the forefoot and profiles donning a seemingly aged aesthetic. Detailing around the profile “N” logos, collar and throughout the outsole proffer stark navy contrast, which creates a combination resembling the ever meme-able New Balance 624. ABZORB tooling visible at the midsole further indulges in an off-white makeup in-line with the manually-“aged” sneakers that’ve taken over certain corners of social media.
