The New Balance 2002R may be most beloved when stylized under the “Refined Future” banner (incorrectly dubbed the “Protection Pack”), but the silhouette continues to deliver heritage and modern looks in such a compelling way that even ultra general releases – the “Refined Future” was one after all – do well.
Recently, the once-failed lifestyle design emerged in a cool “Steel,” “Lead” and “Orca” color combination that resembles some of New Balance‘s most iconic propositions. Underlays around the mid-foot indulge in a darker tone from their surroundings, injecting some contrast into the mix. Profile “N” logos, “2002R” branding on the lateral heel and panels on the spine opt for an off-white look that also takes over the Nergy-assisted midsole. Lastly, details throughout the sole unit favor either grey and black finishes.
