At the turn of the year, New Balance showcased a renewed interest in the 2002R, delivering new colorways of the “Protection Pack” alongside a drove of equally attractive GRs. Soon, the silhouette will also take part in the Freshgoods-led “Conversations Amongst Us” collection, which highlights the classic runner in a cream-dominant palette.

And that’s not all the shoe has in store for us, as it’s recently been unveiled in a new, rugged make-up. But its materials — which blend together leather, mesh, and buttery suedes — are far from the only highlight. Removable pouches, too, are packaged alongside, covering the entire lace unit with its orange and grey ripstop. Elsewhere, the latter neutral dresses many a different texture, such as the short and long hair suede, the hex-patterned base, and even the metallic-like finish of the midsole. Navy also makes an appearance, albeit only along the “N” logo, tread, and cushioning.

For a detailed look at this upcoming 2002R, check out the official images below. Currently, no release date has been set, so sit tight as we await further updates.

In other news, the Nike Air Trainer 1 Midnight Navy is officially returning this year.
