New Balance‘s highly sought-after 2002R “Refined Future” collection, also known as the “Protection Pack” series, is officially returning with three new colorways. Ahead of its official North American release, Long Island-based imprint Extra Butter is hosting an exclusive drop at its Lower East Side and Long Island City locations.

The upcoming “Refined Future” pairs are found in “Mirage Grey,” “Dark Navy,” and “Vintage Orange” colorways featuring the series’ signature choppy suede uppers and two-tone N-ERGY soles. To complement the footwear, Extra Butter is releasing a private label Wabi Sabi Collection including cloud-dyed hoodies, mineral-washed tees, graphic tees, trucker hats, and new wide-leg herringbone trousers. In-store customers will also experience a Zen Garden experience featuring a fish pond and Japanese-inspired specialty cocktails courtesy of The Infamous Bar.

“Last year, we launched the first Refined Future pack through a Y2K narrative, inspired by the era in which the 2002 originally debuted. For this year’s launch, we sought to create product storytelling that directly tied back to the design of the Refined Future Pack,” says Bernie Gross, Creative Director at Extra Butter. “The model’s signature detail is the upper panel that is seemingly cut haphazardly, which to me implied the presence of a human, handmade element. It very much reminded me of the Wabi Sabi – a Japanese philosophy embracing imperfection, impermanence, and asymmetry.”

Look for the New Balance 2002R “Refined Future” pairs to release exclusively at the Extra Butter stores and online September 29 for $160 USD.
