atmos x New Balance 2002R “Shibuya Rat” Drops This Weekend

atmos and New Balance may not be the most prolific duo in footwear, but it’s recently teased a pair that’s sure to get casual and savvy collectors a like excited.

Based on the “Shibuya Rat” theme that’s graced past releases from the Japanese boutique, an upcoming New Balance 2002R delivers a refreshing take to both parties’ catalogs of product. Hits of grey take over most of the lifestyle sneaker, with the darkest shades arriving at the profiles; leather panels found underneath and around sidewall “N” logos are covered in the aforementioned vermin’s footprints. Sock-liners also reference atmos’ rat figure, while remaining accenting details (i.e. tongue labels, spine areas) deviate from the majority of the 2002R’s color palette in a rich blue. Lastly, NERGY sole units combine the upper’s hues with varying shades of blue.

Enjoy campaign imagery of the pair ahead, and find the shoes dropping at atmos Tokyo on Saturday, May 28th.
