In the late 2000s, the New Balance 2002R was on the verge of extinction. But during the past two years, the silhouette has recovered.
The performance-driven, lifestyle sneaker made a recent comeback in the eye-catching “Egg Yolk” design. It swaps out the traditional New Balance muted grey for a bright yellow. The upper’s premium pig suede and breathable mesh reveal a unified appearance. Its branding and other supporting hits only appear at the profiles and heel. The sole unit, which is taken from the 860v2, keeps things underfoot rather straightforward. While participating in the “Neo-vintage” craze that has swept over footwear like never before as of mid-2020. For a tried-and-true ride, the ACTEVA LITE midsole and ABZORB SBS heel piece combine with N-ergy shock absorption technology and Stability Web arch support. Each of the aforementioned details adds to the 2002R’s ever-expanding repertoire. Moreover, “Egg Yolk” will probably soon be seen on other models as well.
