The New Balance 2002R Mule may not replace its standard counterpart in popularity any time soon, but it further demonstrates how good the mid-2010s model’s design is.
Recently, the pair emerged in a straightforward “Rain Cloud” ensemble that’s perfect for around-the-house lounging. Unlike the collaborative effort by artist Bryant Giles, the upcoming style indulges in a clean uniform look across the mesh, suede and leather components that make up the upper. Underfoot, the slip-on silhouette maintains the performance running-informed sole unit, making for one of the most capable lounge-ready options currently on the market.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a stateside NewBalance.com soon (Europe too).
