Editor’s Notes: New Balance is re-releasing 2010’s NB 2002 from its iconic 1000 series. The sneaker will return in the original grey and black colorways before being the subject of a number of high-profile collaborations with the likes of Salehe Bembury, This Is Never That, Invincible x N. Hoolywood and more.

The launch colorways dropped as an Asia-exclusive in September and are now making their way to select retailers such as Sneakersnstuff. The aforementioned collaborations will be released between September and December.

In addition to being one of the top running shoes in 2010, the New Balance 2002 quickly became a favorite among New Balance aficionados and collectors in the early ’10s. Check out the kicks above and stay tuned for further information.
