The Basement x New Balance 2002R "Dark Slate" Will Be Seriously Limited
If you thought the "Moss Green" and "Stone Grey" were limited, wait until you hear about the The Basement x New Balance 2002R "Dark Slate." The fourth colourway to hit the London collective's coveted New Balance collaboration, this will, without a shadow of a doubt, be the most exclusive one of them all. Made exclusively for BSMNT community members, if you want a pair in your collection then you need to keep those fingers and toes crossed, because you're going to need all the luck that you can get.
Featuring a reflective mesh base, this "Friends & Family" edition is covered in waterproof grey suede that wraps around the toebox and sidewalls. Rugged taping surrounds the front and back of the shoe for a utilitarian aesthetic, while the legendary "N" logo adorns the laterals and medials for that signature 2002R look.
The Basement branding hits the tongue, insole, and heel, while 3M accents can be found throughout the entire upper so you can flex even in low light conditions. Shifting your focus down below, the ABZORB midsole enters dark mode. And this is finished with NB's critically-acclaimed N-ERGY outsole for the ultimate balance of response and traction.
As mentioned, The Basement x New Balance 2002R "Dark Slate" will be available to select BSMNT community members, with the lucky few set to be notified on February 4th. If you don't get selected, don't worry, as these will be available at The Edit LDN very soon. In related news, the Junya Watanabe 1906R just stepped out at Paris Fashion Week.
