Inspired by the palette of Antelope Canyon — a slot canyon located in the American Southwest, Arizona — the full sneaker has been unveiled. Based on Antelope Canyon, this New Balance collaboration is decked out in a vibrant orange color palette and crafted from materials such as hairy suede and mesh for a sportswear style look. The finished sneaker showcases multiple shades of orange and of course New Balance’s signature N logo on both the lateral and medial sides. The upcoming collaboration will be the first time the 2002R has appeared in years, in the form of this high-heat collab.
Underfoot, the shoe features a highly cushioned sole unit to ensure it’s plenty comfortable for daily wear, a quality that New Balance prides itself on as a brand. Based on the great outdoors, this is a pair that we’re eager to add to our ever-growing collection.
