Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R

The former vice president of footwear and sneakers at Versace and founder of the new SPUNGE brand, Salehe Bembury, has teased a next collaboration with New Balance on his Instagram account.

Salehe Bembury’s post unveils the back of a NB 2002R with the legendary « Water ».

For its new project with the Boston-based equipment manufacturer, Salehe Bembury is once again revisiting the NB 2002R silhouette. In September 2020, a first collaborative iteration inspired by Antelope Canyon called « Peace Be The Journey » was presented to us and was a great success at its launch (article available HERE).

This next 2002R also seems to pay tribute to nature and its essential resources in view of the legend « Water ». After a suede in a beautiful bright orange color applied on the initial collaborative 2002R, we discover another frank and sustained color : teal blue, complemented by neon green accents. The pair also seems to combine traditional suede and hairy suede. As on the previous version, a fingerprint-shaped pattern adorns the heel and earth-colored splashes appear along the cream and neon green midsole. A teal blue outsole completes the design.

At this time, release details for the upcoming Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R have not been released. But Salehe Bembury is very active and seems eager to really launch its SPUNGE brand. So the news should be coming soon, stay tuned !
