  • New Balance ML2002 *Protection Pack*


    It's no exaggeration to say that New Balance has absolute "momentum" right now when it comes to collaborations. With partners like JJJOUND, Aimé Leon Dore, Salehe Bembury, thisisneverthat and other high profile names, they hit the current zeitgeist like no other footwear brand. But not only is their flair for successful collaborations state of the art, the Boston-based brand also consistently manages to deliver strong general releases and on-point retros. And that's how you also come across the ML2002R Protection Packwhich will soon be released by Asphaltgold.

    In 2010, the New Balance 2002 was released as a luxurious running shoe with a leather upper and a full-length gel midsole. 10 years later, it's back as a contemporary hybrid with the classic upper and sole unit of the 860v2 silhouette. Familiar dad vibes meet the progressive look of millenial runners here, which works immediately!


    The New Balance ML2002R Protection Pack consists of three different colorways of suede and mesh. The individual suede parts have been deconstructed and reassembled in layers, creating a distinct materiality and a rough, almost furry look on the upper. While two variants are monochromatic in color, different shades of grey are used on the third, creating a sleek transition.

    The New Balance ML2002R Protection Pack will be available soon at Asphaltgold - find out when and how via our social media channels. Stay tuned!
