New Balance keeps a steady supply of their most popular silhouettes, from the 550 to the 2002R. And following several new renditions of said basketball oxford, the footwear brand is bringing their attention back to the latter sneaker, dressing it up in an “Atlantic Blue” colorway.
Unlike the pairs revealed earlier this month, this 2002R is lacking in extra carrying capacity, forgoing detachable pouches in favor of a cleaner, more palatable look. The materials, though, do help set the colorway apart from previous entries, with mesh inserts being replaced by indigo-hued, denim reminiscent fabrics. Over top, suedes are done up in matching cool tones, while the heel tab opts for a natural leather akin to the patch on a pair of high quality jeans.
Enjoy a close-up, official look at the New Balance 2002R “Atlantic Blue” right here. A full size run is currently available right now via NewBalance.com for a retail of $139.99 USD.
In other news, the Air Jordan 11 Low Yellow Snakeskin is expected to release this May.
