New Balance Introduces The 2002R “Suede Pack” In Four Colorways

Although it has been overshadowed by the New Balance 550, the New Balance 2002R also caters to a growing consumer base’s desire for vintage performance footwear repackaged in a “lifestyle” package. The updated runner recently debuted in four vibrant suede styles, reintroducing it to the spotlight for the first time since August 2021’s “Refined Future” (or “Protection Pack”) collection.

Mostly constructed of premium pig suede and breathable mesh, each offering features a tonal colour scheme – including updates in “Red Wine,” “Forest Green,” “Hazy Blue,” and “Black Fig.” The silver “N” logos on the profiles and ostensibly reflective panels on the spine carry over from the original model’s early aughts technical running debut. Thus, the most significant update to New Balance’s design comes underfoot, as the NERGY cushioning system injects a chunky, “dad shoe”-appropriate look into one of the Boston-based brand’s long-forgotten silhouettes. Naturally, figures such as Salehe Bembury have aided in altering the course of history since late 2020.

A Joe Freshgoods 550 may be in the works as a collaborative effort.
