New Balance 2002R “Protection Pack” Releases Again in Australia This Week

New Balance 2002R “Protection Pack” Releases Again in Australia This Week

Reintroduced by a series of strong collaborations, namely, Saleh Bembry and BAPE, the New Balance 2002R has enjoyed a robust resurgence — thanks in part to a solid run of accompanying GR drops, too. The next pairs to appear slot somewhere in between, with this in-line “Protection Pack” boasting all the signals of a collaborative effort, here without a name attached.

Prepared in three colorways — “Rain Cloud, “Phantom,” and “Sea Salt” — the range sees the classic 2010 silhouette dressed in distress; an aesthetic not-too-dissimilar to CDG’s work with Nike. The textural suede panels arrive in a similar vein to that seen on the Japanese label’s Air Force 1 Mid, with each cut and extended past their typical design lines. Drawing from its namesake, additional pieces are laid atop the traditional paneling, again drawing similarities to Nike — this time to the recently-revealed Nike Dunk Scrap. Exposed foam tongues, scratchy outsoles, and aged-look midsoles round out the rough-cut designs.


Update 06.29.21 // Euro retailers BSTN has confirmed a July 1st release for both the “Rain Cloud” and “Sea Salt” offerings. A release date for the “Phantom” pair is yet to be confirmed, but you should expect word on its arrival soon.
