Jaden Smith & New Balance's Vision Racer Sneaker Will be Releasing in White, Navy and Yellow

The sustainable sneaker takes inspiration from the artist’s favorite silhouettes: the 1700 and X-Racer.

UPDATE (August 5, 2020): In addition to the initial purple colorway, New Balance has now offered a look at the white iteration of its new sustainable Vision Racer silhouette created in partnership with Jaden Smith. The latest addition boasts a more versatile and universal color palette of navy and yellow.

Arriving in a white mesh upper with suede overlays, the sneakers sport a reflective N logo on the sides. A bright yellow shade appears on the piping around the shoe with small ((VISION)) lettering throughout. More technical overlays are seen in navy, as well as a translucent layer on the heel that is finished off with the NB logo. Giving a chunky look overall, the thick midsole is split into three blocks. Just like the previous iteration, the new Vision Racer is made of partially recycled polyester from post-consumer plastics on the upper, while the insoles are a blend of recycled foam, rubber and castor bean oil.

Peep the latest iteration of the Vision Racer in the gallery above. Priced at $150 USD, the shoes will release at retailers like Nice Kicks on August 10.


ORIGINAL STORY (July 14, 2020): 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.
