Thanks to the Antelope Canyon-inspired collaboration by Salehe Bembury, the New Balance 2002R was given a warm welcome back into the sneaker market. And the middle of Summer ‘21, the lifestyle silhouette is looking to expand its inline collection with a pair of fresh seasonal colorways — the “Yellow Lime” and “White/Orange” iterations.

The more vivid installment of the two is the “Yellow Lime” rendition. It’s titular shade is responsible for covering most of the ground here as its touches the entire mesh underlay, the tongues and the leather side overlays — evoking memories of Kiko Kostadinov’s ASICS GEL-BURZ 1 “Limeade” collaboration from 2018. Reflective notes are visible along the heels and forefoot, and the side “N” logos are presented with white foregrounds and black rimming. Midsoles split between gray walls in the rear and white paint in the forefoot and host exposed gel units that are filled in with red.

Its release sibling skews to the more neutral side, but still bears louder accents. Breathable mesh layers along with the leather overlays are flooded in white, and come complemented with muted teal accents that appear on the collars, lining and forefoot. Bright orange hits then provide a decent amount of pop on the eyelets, heels, and back end of the midsoles.

Both colorways are available now via New Balance Japan for ¥16,280 (approx. $148 USD).

Elsewhere in sneaker news, New Balance and size? have unveiled a clean 237 colorway.
