The original 550 debuted in 1989 and made its mark on basketball courts from coast to coast. After its initial run, the 550 was filed away in the archives, before being reintroduced in limited-edition releases in late 2020, and returned to the full-time lineup in 2021, quickly becoming a global fashion favorite. The 550’s low top, streamlined silhouette offers a clean take on the heavy-duty designs of the late ‘80s, while the dependable synthetic leather upper construction is a classic look in any era.
The New Balance 2002R reintroduces a technical running favorite from the 2000s, outfitting the original design with modern performance upgrades. A synthetic upper construction is rendered with sleek curves and cutout segments for an updated take on a classic look. The performance of a Stability Web and N-ergy shock absorbing outsole stacked on an ABZORB midsole offer comfort and performance that can’t be pinned down with a date. A versatile sack hangs from the laces and features a small zipper to store your goodies. New Balance branding accompanies and decorates the circular tongue emblems, tails, and ankles.
