The COSTS x FDMTL x New Balance 2002R is the latest collaborative effort to launch from the American footwear label and it’s looking like an impressive offering that showcases premium details from start to finish!
Shenzhen-based retailer COSTS has joined forces with renowned Japanese denim label FDMTL to work on the 2002R, a retro-styled runner silhouette that was recently revitalized by Salehe Bembury for his take on the model. We’ve got a closer look at the impressive three-way collaboration right here at The Sole Supplier, so read on for more!
Dressed in a subtle yet effective indigo colorway, the pair are crafted from a whole range of fabrics, with supple suede and athletic mesh beautifully accentuated by traditional Japanese sashiko stitching, an ancient technique that’s recently been popularised in the sneaker world. New Balance’s signature N logo is present across the lateral and medial sides, while COSTS and FDMTL branding is kept subtle on the lace tips and insoles.
This all sits on top of the perfectly-formed performance midsole unit which was designed for running purposes back in the early noughties, offering premium levels of comfort and support to make sure that these are perfectly capable of acting as daily steppers.
If you’re liking the look of the COSTS x FDMTL x New Balance 2002R, they might not be too easy to get hold of. The pair is set to release exclusively via COSTS and FDMTL locations at some point in November, so keep your eyes peeled for more details.
