The 2002R is a staple silhouette in New Balance‘s roster, and to keep things fresh, the sportswear label has just dropped the retro-inspired pair in “Metallic Silver/Red.”

After appearing in various guises designed under the creative lens of Salehe Bembury, as well as in collaborative takes from BAPE, AURALEE, and The Basement, New Balance continues to update the 2002R itself. As previous standout colorways have shown, its general release pairs are sure sell-outs, and this “Metallic Silver/Red” iteration should be no exception.

Mesh underpins the upper before being overlayed with “Metallic Silver” and gray leather panels, while red mesh decorates the mid-panel alongside more red details on the heel surrounding the “NB” stamp, on the outsole, and on the toe and top eyelet. Proprietary Stability Web and N-durance technology can be found embedded into the sole unit alongside N-ERGY tech, most of which is branded on the pair, while a 2002R stamp can be found on the lateral rear-quarter.

Final touches of New Balance branding hit up the tongue, vamp, and toe cap, which is finished in dark gray and runs under the midsole. Take a closer look at the New Balance 2002R “Metallic Silver/Red” above, and pick up your pair from Très Bien now for $160 USD.

In related news, Miu Miu has opened pre-orders for its New Balance 574 collaboration.
