New Balance continues its partnership with Jaden Smith after releasing a variety of colorways and iterations of his popular Vision Racer silhouette. The Vision Racer takes inspiration from Jaden’s favourite NB models - the X-Racer and the 1700. The collaborative project continues this Summer 2021 Season, this time around in one of the most neutral iterations thus far. Tailing New Balance’s ‘Grey Day’ Pack, the exotic sneaker boasts a similar palette of mixed grey tones which compliment each other effortlessly on the upper.
The sneaker design is constructed from recycled polyester which is mixed with meshing for a sustainable and environmentally conscience design. The re-grinded midsole in white is formed with a repurposed foam that is complimented by an ice blue outsole. White lacing matches the midsole for a clean and contrasting look. Other features include hot pink Vision Racer Logos that sit in an oversized typography under the sole as well as on the insoles. The chunky styled shoe is also built with New Balance’s signature comfort and support on the heel.

After previous color releases from the Jaden Smith and New Balance collaboration, the Spring 2021 season includes a new all white women’s colorway of the Vision Racer silhouette as well as a new black colorway for men.
Inspired by the NB 1700 and X-Racer, the New Balance x Jaden Smith Vision Racer features tonal suede and mesh uppers with some materials used being made in part from vegan friendly faux leather and suede as well as recycled plastics and textiles. Each pair’s colorway panels sit at the midsection, while custom “VISION RACER” piping lines across each shoe’s body in a neon pink colorway similar to previous iterations that have released. New Balance logos also rest at the mid foot and heel cuffs. “VISIONS” branding lies beneath the translucent rubber outsoles and embellishes the tongue tabs.
