Since appearing in 2021, New Balance has seen much success with its deconstructed “Protection Pack” releases. Utilizing the popular New Balance 2002R silhouette, the theme has found itself in a wide variety of colorways. Now, it goes back to its initial batch of grayscale colorways with a new black, gray and white look.

The popular mixed material sneaker begins with a black mesh that is exposed at the collar and towards the toe. Its next layer favors a suede presentation with a blend of gray and beige appearing at the heel cap and as overlays at the toe box. Following this, a dark gray suede joins the look alongside a black suede that serves as the final layer of the detailed upper. As for branding, the “N” logo combines the letter in black with a white outline while “2002R” text appears at the lateral’s heel. Pivoting to the sole unit, an ABZORB midsole balances off-white with brownish-gray while an N-ERGY outsole completes the look in black.

Release for the latest installment of New Balance’s “Protection Pack” for the 2002R is expected to take place in the coming months via New Balance and select retailers at a price of $165 USD.

Enjoy a first look at the sneaker above and for more in the footwear space from New Balance, the 2002R just dropped in “Steel” and “Phantom” colorways.
