Original Story (08/05/20): After last month’s initial debut of their collaborative Vision Racer in “Wavy Baby Blue,” Jaden Smith and New Balance are back with another colorway of his first-ever signature sneaker.
While the shoe’s first release was a bold powder blue, its second iteration is much more toned down color-wise. The vegan-friendly upper is primarily dressed in white durable mesh and soft grey faux suede but comes with cool navy blue accents and New Balance branding. Above the shoe’s incredibly chunky white midsole, yellow piping with Jaden’s signature ((VISION)) branding provides a small pop of eye-catching color. The model is finished off with a 3D ((VISION)) logo underneath the shoe’s icy translucent outsole.
Expect the second colorway of the Jaden Smith x New Balance Vision Racer to drop very soon via New Balance’s webstore and select retailers. You can check out photos of the upcoming colorway down below.
