Melbourne’s premier sneaker and fashion boutique Up There is definitely having a massive 2022 with sneaker collaborations. They started with the ASICS GT-II and then went on to the New Balance M2002RUT. To end the year with a bang, Up There is back at it again with another huge collaboration with New Balance.

The Up There x New Balance M2002RUP  ‘Backyard Legends II’ is born from a love of sports footwear, inspired by a laid-back Australian lifestyle, translated through the lens of the New Balance expertise.

After taking a classic catch, Pat floated across the Pacific Ocean for almost a year — washing up in California. Regardless of how that’s even possible, Pat’s back and itching to bowl another over in his M2002RUP.

The 2002R is back for another innings — that springy N-ERGY sole unit and techy upper are still perfect for the job. The synthetic materials are out, subbed for American–made Wolverine suede. There’s mesh everywhere — even places you wouldn’t normally find it. The signature details of the first Backyard Legends aren’t going anywhere, including the iconic “AUS” branding — we can’t let anyone forget where these Legends floated–in from.

The Up There x New Balance M2002RUP ‘Backyard Legends II’ will release exclusively through Up There with an in-store release from 8am AEDT Friday the 9th of December and a global online release the following day from 8am AEDT Saturday the 10th of December.

Men’s sizes US5 through to US13 (including US5.5 through to US11.5) will be available for $250AUD. Make sure you sign up to our newsletter, so you can stay up to date! For other Up There features, click HERE and for New Balance features, click HERE.
