Inspired by the source of life that is water, New Balance teams up with footwear designer Salehe Bembury to bring back the 2002 silhouette with this 2002R. This style features blue hairy suede overlays with open hole mesh underlays. Leather hits and shearling accents are added throughout the upper. Defining features such as the shearling N logo and the sand-colored mesh play on the aesthetic of the characteristics of our earth. Our NERGY foam midsole creates a perfect plane of comfort with each step. Water Be The Guide.
