New Balance has teamed up with Jaden Smith to debut the Vision Racer inspired by Jaden’s unique, bold, fashion-forward aesthetic to continue pushing boundaries for the brand.
Taking cues from Jaden’s favorite New Balance models, the sporty X-Racer and classic 1700, the NB for Jaden Smith Vision Racer merges classic New Balance design with Jaden’s contemporary aesthetic. Each element of the Vision Racer incorporates partially recycled materials and the shoe is vegan-friendly. The use of sustainable and vegan materials on the Vision Racer pushed the New Balance supply chain further and helped speed up the brand’s timeline to leverage more sustainable and vegan friendly materials.
Additional features of the NB for Jaden Smith Vision Racer include reflective details on the tongue webbing, N logo and upper piping for visibility at night; a rubberized tip for added durability to support Jaden’s high intensity lifestyle of performing and skateboarding; and, an exaggerated, iced outsole with “Vision” print.
Look for the Jaden Smith x New Balance Vision Racer in its Wavy Baby Blue colorway to release on July 17th at select retailers and NewBalance.com. The retail price tag is set at $150 USD. Additional colorways will become available throughout 2020.
