The New Balance 2002R “Triumph Green” fuses heritage styling with modern footwear technology. Ironically, the 2002R was introduced not in 2002, but in 2010 as part of New Balance’s 1000 collection of performance running shoes. As for the design, the “Triumph Green” utilizes a predominantly deep forest green suede construction. Subtle dark grey leather panels can be found on the forefoot and mid-panel. A grey “N” logo resides on either side and “NB” insignia appears within the branding window on the back of the shoe. “New Balance Running” branding on the tongue belies the model’s performance roots. ABZORB and ABZORB SBS cushioning in the midsole and heel of the shoe ensure optimal comfort whether for performance or casual wear.
