New Balance Vision Racer X Jaden SmithMen Shoes
A Sustainable Vision
Jaden Smith’s third collaboration with New Balance brings the vegan-friendly edition called Jaden Smith x New Balance Vision Racer “Surplus”. Made with recycled mesh and synthetic leather scraps, the sneaker also comes in a riot of colors to give it a more unique look. The insoles have Smith’s signature together with white rubber soles. The icy outsole also has the inscription ‘VISION’ underneath taking the style quotient a notch higher.
