Jaden Smith is arguably one of the more innovative partners that New Balance has on its roster right now because when he teamed up with the brand he made it a point to introduce his own silhouette rather than just apply his creative touch on an existing one. And to make your Summer — and your wardrobe — even more electrifying, the artist and activist is broadening his catalog with the sportswear imprint by introducing the “Trippy Summer” Pack which entails two playful takes of the New Balance Vision Racer and matching apparel.

Smith tends to pull inspiration from many different spaces, but this specific collection draws from the nature’s vibrant colors and is symbolic of his commitment to spread positivity and affect change. Both base layers of the each for the sneaker offerings are more or less styled in a similar way. The first option is styled with a blend of white mesh and synthetic base layers and comes contrasted with a bold teal pop on the N logo borders. Further accents arrive by way of the repetitive Vision Racer which is printed in pink while the segmented midsoles come dressed with a cool blue to teal to faded red gradient. Its release sibling also features mostly white uppers but comes complemented with dusty pink overlays and loud mudguards that alternate between purple, orange and green paneling. Chunky midsoles deviate with an off white hue. Apparel is included in this launch for the first time ever between the two parties and includes a hoodie and a t-shirt. Both translate the palette and kaleidoscopic details from Jaden’s previous and upcoming albums, the latter of which features a tune called ‘Trippy Summer.’

You can cop both kicks via New Balance come July 30 for $150 USD while the hoodie and tee will run you $90 and $45 USD.

Elsewhere in sneaker news, a trio of Summer-friendly New Balance 57/40s have been revealed.
