As part of their Spring/Summer 2022 collection, Japanese label AURALEE have linked up with New Balance for two takes on the 2002R. The duo of styles follow up the AURALEE x New Balance 550 that was released in July.
The first pair is a two-tone iteration that blends tan suedes and leathers with a grey mesh toebox. The second style supplies a more airy look, with an all-white forefoot and midfoot giving way to a duo of brown shades towards the heel. Both are rounded off by two-tone grey and white midsoles plus special AURALEE-branded insoles.
In past years, AURALEE head Ryota Iwai has also worked with New Balance to craft luxe takes on the RC_2 and COMP100 as well as the above-mentioned 550, so this set of 2002Rs marks the brand's fifth collaborative effort with New Balance in total.
Exact release information and pricing details for the AURALEE x New Balance 2002R collection have yet to be revealed, but it's set to release early in 2022 alongside the brand's full Spring/Summer range.
