New Balance & Salehe Bembury Are Dropping An Outdoors Inspired 2002 Trainer
The New Balance x Salehe Bembury 2002 ‘Water Be The Guide’ trainer marks the next collaboration from the Los Angeles based footwear designer.
Based on the 2002 model, the New Balance 2002R has become an extremely popular lifestyle trainer over the last 12 months. The original ‘Made in USA’ silhouette from the early noughties was re-worked into a brand new design, courtesy of Tetsuya Shono, and has quickly become a sneaker head staple. Boasting a sleeker and more lightweight design than previous 2002 models, the updated performance runner gets a taste of the great outdoors with the New Balance x Salehe Bembury 2002 ‘Water Be The Guide’ trainer.
After previously working with the likes of Versace & Yeezy, Bembury now turns his attention to the New Balance 2002 trainer. Featuring shaggy suede uppers, leather overlays & mesh underlays, with colourway inspiration from Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon. Other highlights include ABZORB® sole technology and classic ‘N’ branding to the sidewalls.
The New Balance x Salehe Bembury 2002 ‘Water Be The Guide’ trainer launches on Friday 25th June 2021 from a range of retailers we work with.
