Not long ago, New Balance brought back the 2002R silhouette. Thanks to numerous collaborators and an equally strong assortment of GRs, the silhouette quickly returned to form, setting the stage for many a release thereafter. And soon, we’re to see one of its most interesting collections yet: the “Protection Pack.”

Prepared in three colorways — “Rain Cloud, “Phantom,” and “Sea Salt” — the range sees the 2010 classic dressed abstract, its look not too dissimilar to CdG’s work with Nike. The textural suede panels, for example, are treated similar to the Japanese label’s AF1 Mid, with each cut and extended passed their usual points. Additional pieces are laid atop as well, from which the pack likely draws its namesake. While the tongue follows suit thematically with its exposed foam and unfinished edges, the tooling and base construction retain a look far more ordinary.

Grab a close-up glimpse at the trio of offerings below and expect sizes to appear at select retailers and newbalance.com soon.

In other news, the Supreme Vans Monogram S pack is dropping tomorrow.
