United Arrows Apply Brand Colours to the New Balance 2002R
Release: 29 April 2022

Style Code: M2002RGY

Colourway: United Arrows

Everybody wants a piece of the New Balance 2002R right now. The next entity to whip up a tasty colourway of the revived runner is Japan’s United Arrows, who have leaned on a reliable combination of hues that have decorated their sneaker efforts for years.

UA and NB go way back into the 2000s, with one particular collaboration breaking through into the West thanks to another West. While their presence is definitely known now around the world, the retailer still maintains exclusivity with their releases by restricting sales only to their stores domestically, which is the case for these 2002Rs.

The pair uses a white leather and mesh base, making way for copious insertions of pink underlays on the toe box, tongue, heel and midsole. Blue lines the ankle collar and toe bumper accent, while also forming the lower heel crash pad and outsole tread. These two colours then converge on the N logo, forming a cool gradient. With such a distinct combination to represent the brand, it makes sense UA don’t leave their logo anywhere here.

Pre-orders are open now for the United Arrows New Balance 2002R. International buyers will need someone on the ground in Japan to obtain a pair as this is exclusive to domestic customers.
