New Balance 2002R “Steel/Lead/Orca” M2002RST

The New Balance 2002R is perhaps most beloved when styled under the “Refined Future” banner (mistakenly called the “Protection Pack”), but the silhouette continues to deliver a heritage and modern look in a way so compelling that even the ultra-general versions – the “Refined Future” was one after all – do well.

Recently, the once-failed lifestyle design has emerged in a cool “Steel”, “Lead” and “Orca” color combination that resembles some of New Balance’s most iconic offerings. Underlays around the midfoot indulge in a darker tone to their surroundings, injecting some contrast into the mix. Profile “N” logos, “2002R” branding to the lateral heel and spine panels opt for an off-white look that also picks up the Nergy-assisted midsole. Finally, the details of the sole favor the gray and black finishes.

In sneaker news, the New Balance 9060 continues to emerge in new colorways, with rumors of a collaboration with Jack Harlow recently emerging.
