Release Details: Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R ‘Water Be The Guide’Release: 25 June 2021
One of the sneakers that defined 2020 was the Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R ‘Peace Be The Journey’. With the wildly successful nature of that release, we weren’t surprised when the duo revealed another 2002R, this time called ‘Water Be The Guide’. Following a similar blueprint to its predecessor, Bembury’s next venture looks to Havasu Falls in Arizona as inspiration for the unique colourway. While last year’s ‘Peace Be The Journey’ pair had a long lead up full of teasers, it was only a week ago that Bembury officially revealed his new colour combo, and now he’s come through with a full campaign and release details.
Once again, actor Jesse Williams features in the promotional video, with epic imagery showcasing the new crep. Inspired by water, the combo leans towards a blue hue that covers the full signature shaggy suede overlays. Pinkish mesh has been laid down as the base, with orange pops complemented by the speckled midsole injected with Nergy tech. Completing the classic Bembury look is the furry suede N and branding down the lace keeper.
Check out the epic campaign video down below, and the beautiful imagery above, then head to select NB stockists on June 25 to get your pair of the Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R ‘Water Be The Guide’. We’ll curate a Where to Buy guide before the release date.
