A Brief History of the New Balance 2002R

New Balance 2002R ML2002RA

The New Balance 2002R revival almost never happened. Originally over budget and underappreciated by the masses, the high-end runner left as quickly as it arrived in the 2010s before coming back in 2020 with a fresh new look and accessible status. In 2021, the shoe finally broke into the market via some well-placed collaborations and GRs, and in 2022, it continues its hot streak with dozens of colours on the way. As the model has added plenty to its second chapter in the sneakersphere, it’s time to catch up on the brief life of the 2002R so far as it continues writing its history.
