Just a few days ago, rumours began to surface about the first collaboration between New Balance and BAPE, which aims to give a new look to the classic 2002R model.

It seems that 2021 is full of surprises for sneakerheads. And recently, three images have begun to circulate on the networks in which some details of what will be the next object of desire are revealed.

New Balance x BAPE 2002R 1st pair

As we can see in the teaser files, the capsule will be made up of three pairs with the iconic BAPE symbols: the famous Ape figure, the shark teeth and the Sta logo. In addition, the running and casual aesthetic we are so used to will be maintained in all of them.

The first model is characterised by its neat metallic greyscale; the second appears to combine the distinctive camouflage print with more striking colours such as red and green. Finally, the third pair will also combine a grey scale, but with a predominance of black tones, making it more discreet.
