The Protection Pack collection from New Balance
The "Protection Pack" edition imagined by the Boston-based brand was first unveiled in 2021. Two years later, this collection is one of the firm's most eagerly awaited and popular. The secret? Its "unstructured" effect.
The New Balance Protection Pack was designed to reconstruct and deconstruct the entire anatomy of the New Balancesneaker silhouette. The objective? Unveil a superimposition of different materials on the upper of the sneaker to give it character, texture and relief. The inserts are precision-cut with a knife, giving new definition to the sneaker's contours.
The essential NB 2002R Protection Pack
After its initial launch in 2010, the New Balance 2002R has made a remarkable comeback, now positioning itself as one of the flagship models from the famous Boston firm. And the New Balance 2002R Protection Pack collection saw the light of day at the beginning of July 2021 in three colors: one black, one gray and one white. Immediate success. The 2002R Protection Pack won over the hearts of sneakerheads with its unstructured look.
Its distinctive feature? A combination of four materials on its upper: smooth leather, mesh, hairy suede and 3M. And that's what makes the NB 2002R Protection Pack so unique. As much a men's sneaker as a women's, this completely unisex pair of shoes will suit everyone, thanks to its diversity of models. Think Pink in more feminine tones, or Purple Lavender and Rain Cloud to suit both men and women.
The 1906 Protection Pack: a retro sneaker
Just like its sister sneaker, the New Balance 1906 and later the 1906 Protection Pack have both made a thunderous comeback that has been widely noticed by the sneaker community. As its name suggests, the NB 1906 pays tribute to the Boston-based company, founded in 1906 in the USA.
The four New Balance 1906 Protection Pack are all equipped with an N-ERGY sole made entirely of gel, bringing comfort and cushioning to the pair of sneakers. Iconic thanks to their retro design, which takes us straight back to the 2000s, they quickly became a must-have. The 1906D Protection Pack sneakers, whether Reflection, Castlerock or Black, all feature the same unstructured inserts of different materials, unique to the Protection Pack collection.
