It's been about half a year since Versace's footwear designer teased the Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R, and now, it's dropping just around the corner. Regarded by many sneakerheads as one of the most underrated collabs of the year, hype has been slowly but surely building up over the past few months, and we think that they're a definite must cop especially if you haven't had the pleasure of owning a pair of New Balance.
Arriving in an ultra vibrant all-orange palette, Bembury's take on the ML2002R1 is made to turn heads. Crafted from some of the most premium materials any shoe has ever seen, this Antelope Canyon-inspired NB builds atop a breathable mesh base while swathes of suede feature throughout for a buttery smooth touch.
A denim stitched "N" graces the lateral and medial side panels, while co-branded detailing arrives on the tongue and laces. To round it all off, an extra chunky N-ERGY midsole sits down below, literally taking comfort and cushioning levels to new heights.
Set to drop on October 23rd which is just ten days from now, the Salehe Bembury x New Balance ML2002R1 should not be missed, so make sure you keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for your best chance to cop. Let us know if you'll be adding these to your collection, and while you're here, here's why you're going to love the New Balance Made in UK 920!
