Ganni And New Balance Collaborate On A Y2K Sneaker

Reimagining an early-2000s New Balance silhouette.

Ganni is back once again with yet another Y2K-throwback release, following the recent launch of its collection with Juicy Couture just the week before. On Wednesday, April 6, the Danish fashion label announced its latest partnership with New Balance for their first-ever collaboration on the sneaker brand’s 2002R silhouette. The campaign, shot by photographer Rosie Marks, features models running through the streets of Copenhagen while sporting the chunky, logo-adorned kicks.

“I am such a big fan of New Balance, I’ve been wearing them since forever,” said Ditte Reffstrup, Creative Director of Ganni, in an official statement. “New Balance’s 2002R style really fits into the Copenhagen way of dressing — we’re always cycling and running somewhere. This shoe is the perfect mix of function and fashion. It’s a huge honor to put a Ganni spin on such an iconic New Balance shoe and we are super excited to be able to create it with so much innovation and recycled materials.”
