Last year’s New Balance 2002r “Protection Pack” was one of the brand’s best collabs of 2021. Looking to follow suit, New Balance will be dropping another New Balance 2002R “Protection Pack” very soon. The Boston footwear brand expand on one of the most popular GR silhouettes with three upcoming offerings in “Vintage Orange,” “Pink,” and “Purple.”
The upcoming pairs of The New Balance 2002R “Protection Pack” all feature the same design as the original release, which according to designer Yue Wu, is a “wearable relic” that has been “eroded.” The rusty orange version is easily the standout of the confirmed trio, but purple and pink joints coming down the pipeline also give it serious competition for the supreme color scheme.
A stateside NewBalance.com launch has yet to be released by the company, expect select retailers in Europe and Asia drop their pairs on April 1st. Retail is set at $150 USD.
