Jaden Smith & New Balance Debut Eco-Friendly Vision Racer Silhouette

A new sneaker taking inspiration from the artist’s favorite silhouettes: the 1700 and X-Racer.

Continuing its strong list of collaborations with brands like Casablanca, New Balance has now tapped Jaden Smith to showcase its latest sneaker silhouette, dubbed Vision Racer. The design takes signature details from Smith’s favorite NB shoes: the 1700 and X-Racer.

The first-ever colorway for the kicks is “Wavy Baby Blue,” a dusty indigo shade. With a bulky midsole divided into three rectangular blocks, the sneaker arrives with an upper crafted with mesh and suede. Highlighting the design is a translucent outsole that sports bright pink “((VISION))” text in the font from Smith’s albums SYRE and ERYS.

Another notable element of the new shoe is the sustainable textiles used throughout. The upper is crafted partially with recycled polyesters from post-consumer plastic, while the insoles are made of castor bean oil, recycled foam and rubber along with virgin polyurethane. All materials, including the EVA foam midsole, are vegan-friendly.

Take a closer look at New Balance’s latest sneakers above. The Vision Racer is slated to arrive at NB’s online store on July 24 for $150 USD.
