Any New Balance aficionado is likely to see exactly where NB was going with this one. About 10-15 years ago they were obsessed with mule-ifying their top-of-the-line running sneakers. We're not quite sure who the target demographic was, but the 99x series mules were a resounding flop at the time. Like anything though, time passed and NB mules have become a mythical legend.
Mercifully the New Balance design team listened to the "mulement" and sliced the back off their 2002R to create the beauties you see before you. You're not tripping, it's just that your eyes have never seen something so perfect – all of the wonders of a 2002R without expelling any effort to put them on. What a time to be alive!
Anyone familiar with NB's history may recognise this white and navy combo, with hints of gold as an original colourway from the 1700. One of the most polarising of NB's flagship models, the 1700's white leather colourway can divide even the most devout NB aficionados. We love it, of course.
