In honor of our 30th anniversary, @newbalance created a 2002R colorway for us. To pay homage to our roots, the colorway is inspired by iconic views and lookout points in San Francisco. With San Francisco in our backyard, we want to pay homage to historical landmarks that helped shape Bay Area culture. The natural colors from the coast from rocky cliffs above the ocean, the shady stands of cypress and eucalyptus trees, and the secret labyrinth inspired us to design a capsule to pay homage to our beautiful surrounding. The foundational color scheme draws inspiration from the rugged terrain, with hints of rocky textures. The blue laces represent the ocean, while the pink laces capture the essence of the Golden Gate Bridge's vibrant hues. The green insole is a tribute to the eucalyptus trees that grace the local landscape.
