2020 was a major year for Salehe Bembury as he racked up a multitude of compelling footwear partnerships and earned himself the FN Designer of the Year award. One of his projects that seemed to turn the heads of sneaker lovers from last year was his New Balance 2002R “Peace Be The Journey” collaboration, and now the two parties are set to continue this line with a second version that has finally been revealed via the designer’s IG: the New Balance 2002R “Water Be The Guide”.

As suggested by its namesake, the design execution of this lifestyle offering is representative of the ocean. Aquatic teals reminiscent of tropical waters dress up the shaggy suede and leather overlays as well as the laces and interior lining. Mesh underlays are done up in a dusted coral hue, while rustic orange accents make their way to the tongue’s backgrounds and branded overlays atop the lower throat and lateral heels. Additionally, the “N” logos that are stationed on the mid-foot are color-blocked between forest green and neon green outlines. Midsoles are mostly white in complexion, but also come decorated with orange speckles throughout. Bringing everything together is the treading which also comes outfitted in a bright teal tone.

Release information is still unknown, but expect these to drop via New Balance and select retailers in the coming months.
