For this new installment of Closer Looks, we take a detailed look at the freshly released Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R.

The Havasu Falls-inspired “Water Be the Guide” colorway features bright and vivid hues of green mixed with earth tones — reflecting bodies of water in nature and the surrounding natural elements like earth and moss. From the detailed images, we now get a better look at the coral and emerald greens that are split between the hairy and premium suede, and leather overlays. Salmon appears in the mesh underlays while orange is found on the midsole in a speckled pattern. Finishing off the shoe is neon green on the Stability Web TPU shank, the NERGY foam midsole, and on the outline of the “N” logo. There are also leather accents on the tongue and collar.

While already sold out over at New Balance and other retailers like HBX, these images should hold you over until the next big release from Salehe Bembury.

In other footwear news, the second Nike SB Dunk Low “ACG Terra” colorway boasts “Red Plum” and “Citron” accents.
