The New Balance 2002R GORE-TEX was first released in Japan on July 21, 2022. It is a popular choice in running shoes due to its superior performance and durability. Using this durable material is perfect for outdoor activities and is also breathable and lightweight. This material combines polyurethane with soft EVA foam to keep feet comfortable no matter what. The shoe’s breathable membrane stops sweat and water wicking through the shoe.
The New Balance 801 is made of cream-white textiles and has an embroidered “N” on its upper tongue. Light grey detailing and round laces complete the design. A GORE-TEX strip runs down the upper sidewalls above the tonal “N” logo, while smooth protective leather mudguards protect the foot from water. The shoe can also be ordered in all-black with a black mudguard, geometric patterns, and a black sole.
