New Balance had a laundry list of highlights throughout the course of 2021 in terms of its footwear releases, and one range that stood out and ended up on several sneaker of the year lists was the 2002R “Protection Pack.” Given that this initiative was so well-received amongst the footwear community, the brand has decided to further expand upon its catalog with new colorways in 2022. A total of six new makeups are expected to hit the market, two being a “Pink/Lavender” iteration and the other being fashioned in a purple palette.

The “Pink/Lavender” installment is whimsical in every sense of the word. The key component of this model is the deconstructed motif, and its various “unfinished” overlays are styled with magenta, soft pink and lavender shadings. Creamy laces add a subtle touch of contrast, as well as the midsole units which are presented with a clean white hue. Faded purple foam pods are exposed on the rear end, and the shoes are rounded off with black treading.

Dropping alongside this iteration is a purple colorway that is on the more understated side. Mesh underlays are fashioned with grey outers and come neighbored by two shades of purple that merge together on the raw cut overlays. Like its counterpart, this variation also comes with off-white laces.

A release date for these 2002Rs hasn’t been announced yet, but you can likely expect them to drop in the coming weeks for $150 USD via New Balance soon.

In other news, New Balance recently unveiled its new CT302 lifestyle model.
