New Balance’s campaign to revive the 2002R has been rather successful, making the model one of the brand’s most popular shoes of 2020. It was largely accomplished through collaborations with the likes of Thisneverthat, Invincible, and Salehe Bembury. The 2002 was initially billed as a luxury running sneaker when it released in 2010. The 2020 edition was updated with the ‘R’ to denote the updated model.

New Balance is now offering two new tonal colorways of the 2002R. One pair comes in a classic light blue suede that covers the entire shoe with the exception of the midsole. The midsole comes in white and has light blue ABZORB heel cushion to create a little contrast. The second pair is draped in taupe in its entirety.

These two new tonal 2002R colorways are expected to drop within the coming weeks via New Balance and select retailers, though an exact release date has yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for more information about New Balance releases. In other 2002R news, check out the second pair of 2002R’s that Salehe Bembury teased recently.
