The New Balance 2002R returns in new colors for Summer 2024 this week, continues the silhouette’s years-long domination of the brand’s release catalog. The latest pair of the retro runner has arrived in a “Copper” orange color scheme, available now.

Fresh colorways of the 2002R have been launching non-stop for the last few years. The model, originally released in 2010, came back into the fold several years ago, repurposed as a more casual lifestyle shoe, and helped usher in the current trend of retro running models. Since then, we’ve seen new releases and collaborations featuring the silhouette on a seasonal basis, with New Balance keeping the shoe in their arsenal for each successive season. This week, the brand released a new pair of the 2002, dressing the shoe in a simple “Copper” orange look. The shoe’s outer suede layers come in the creamsicle-like shade, with “Infield Clay” orange making up contrast in the simple monotone palette. Sea Salt white accents round out the new look.

In other New Balance releases, the “Hi-Lite” 990v4 from the Made in USA line drops in June.


New Balance’s latest color scheme of their 2002R runner quietly launched this week, on May 24th, 2024, and is now available directly from the brand’s website in a full size range. Dressed in two shades of orange, “Copper” and “Infield Clay”, pairs come with a price tag of $145.
