Gore-Tex Returns In A Wheat Outfit On The New Balance 2002R

New Balance 2002r Gore Tex Wheat M2002rxg 4

Since proffering a glut of inline colorways and neutral toned Protection Pack constructions, the New Balance 2002R has leaned on the collaborative aid of The Basement, Up There and KITH to close out 2022. In an effort to combat the chilling  front half of the new year, the Boston-based brand is returning its revitalized lifestyle offering to the weather-resistant tooling of Gore-Tex panels.

Dominated by a flurry of earth-toned shades, a rich brown mesh base layer combines effortlessly with the light cream forefoot overlays and 2002R branded heel embellishment for an introductory contrast whereas its upper heel tab and sock liner proffer an opposing dark chocolate outfit. Disparate from its surrounding tonal effort, the midfoot “N” logo enjoys a dark grey cast while a sliver of the heel extends metallic silver hits amidst clad suede “Wheat” overlays. A majority of the pair’s real estate is reserved for the latter shade, extended along its tongue construction, laces and mudguard whereas creams and light browns provide finishing touches to the perforated heel counter and N-ERGY sole unit underfoot.

While we sit tight on further release details, enjoy official images of the New Balance 2002R Gore-Tex “Wheat” below in the meantime.
