Bask in beyond comfort with the New Balance 2002R

The New Balance 2002R is the modernized take on the 2010 running shoe dubbed the NB 2002. Added with R, which stands for 2020, the NB 2002R kept the OG look of its predecessor and incorporated some changes to make it even more comfortable for today’s wear. This lifestyle model uses quality materials with technologies that will make our city walks cozy and stylish. 

Distinctive features:

  • For an authentic classic running footwear look, NB combines mesh and suede on the upper. The mesh upper is for breathability, while the suede overlays add durability and style.
  • The ABZORB cushioning technology found on the midsole offers a springy feel for maximized comfort and stability.
  • The visible N-ergy technology, which effectively absorbs shock, is seen on the lateral side of the back heel that pretty much looks like the popular Nike Shox.

Additional info

  • Fans of deconstructed sneakers would surely like the 2002R Protective Pack. This includes 3 colorways namely: Phantom, Sea salt, and Rain Cloud.
