There's no doubt in anyone's mind that the 2002R is one of the most popular New Balance silhouettes out there. Originally released in the early 2000s, the model was very recently brought back and things haven't been the same since. Thanks to colorways like the upcoming New Balance 2002R Gore-Tex "Camel," every single sneakerhead out there is now totally obsessed with it. And honestly, we don't blame them. Made for the wet and windy weather, this definitely deserves a spot in your daily rotation this season.
Painted in a camel colorway, this 2002R works on top of a breathable mesh base and is covered in buttery suede throughout. Tan leather accents make their way to the toebox and heel for an even more luxurious look and feel, and to the sidewalls, you'll find the Boston-based sportswear company's signature "N" logo in grey. All of this sits on top of an ABZORB midsole that's as comfortable as it gets, and it's finished with a Gore-Tex lining for added waterproofing, making these the ultimate companion for the rainier days ahead.
What's there not to love about the New Balance 2002R Gore-Tex Camel? Expected to release in 2023, it will be available in men's sizes with a retail price of $180.
