Where to Buy the Next New Balance 2002R 'Protection Pack'
New Balance’s 2002R has been on a hot streak this year, with the GR offerings and collaborations dominating the release calendar and remaining a major part of the 2022 sneakersphere. NB have also continued their long-running ‘Protection Pack’, quickly becoming a fan-favourite ever since the 2021 drop, subsequent restock and re-up of new colourways. The third coming of this pack has arrived in two new iterations and has been locked in to release this week.
Initially leaked in March, NB have opted for two more tonal combos, one dressed in ‘Lilac Chalk’ and another in ‘Light Arctic Grey’. Both rock the signature deconstructed vibe, utilising suede panels with a torn look. Each also features a mesh base with cream sole, dyed heel, off-white laces and 2002R lateral branding. The midsole has also been injected with N-ERGY tech to provide a comfy ride.
Raffles are open now in select regions for the third New Balance 2002R ‘Protection Pack’ and will close between August 31 and September 2. Head down below for our Where to Buy guide – we’ll keep this article updated as other parts of the world announce a release.
