Once a largely forgotten piece of New Balance‘s early ’00s running lineup that’s now living a second life as a casual favorite, the brand’s 2002R has been brought to market in several clean colorways over the spring and summer months — the latest duo of which are classic navy and gray makeups. Each pair sports one of NB’s most famous hues, and both feature a sporty build with just enough technical flair to provide a casual look that’s at home in the streets and the gym alike.

Uppers feature a mesh forefoot, collar and tongue, overlaid by supple suede mudguards, quarter panels and heels. Branding is handled by tonal N logos on each quarter — rimmed with white and secured to the upper by thick embroidery — plus small 2002R graphics directly under the lateral half of the collar. There’s also a handful of hi-vis reflective hits to be had, namely a New Balance Running graphic on the suede tongue and a touch of detail on the heel. Down below, both shoes round their look off with sail-colored midsoles that use soft silver N-ERGY gel in the heel for cushioning.

Interested parties can expect both of these New Balance 2002Rs to release at retailers like BILLY’s Tokyo on June 5, priced at a tax-inclusive ¥16,280 JPY (approximately $149 USD).
