Water Be The Guide: How to cop Salehe’s 2002R with New Balance this week

Posted on Jul 21, 2021 in New Balance

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.

And just in case you’re wondering, that’s not Salehe rocking the 2002s. That’s Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams rocking the pair for the shoe’s campaign. Would these be part of 2021’s greatest sneaker hits? Only time will tell, but we’re definitely happy these bangers are dropping on our shores despite the delay.

The Salehe Bembury 2002R ‘Water Be the Guide’ drops this week exclusively at Sole Academy and Commonwealth via raffle. SA’s currently open for registration and you can join by clicking here. The 2002R retails for Php 8,295.
