Fellow New Balance collaborator and FN Style Influencer of the Year, Storm Reid commented on the post. “Black colorway goes crazy,” the “Missing” star wrote. The New Balance Lifestyle Instagram also commented on the post with the eyeball emoji.

More photos of the style have since emerged online at Dubai-based shoe retailer Level, which already has the style available for pre-order on its site. On Level’s webstore, the retailer describes the updated style as a classic court silhouette with a leather and suede upper.

The debut New Balance x MSFTSrep 0.01 sneaker dropped in October and featured an all-white upper with a full leather build and matching mesh tongue, with a “NB” and “MSFTSrep” logos printed on opposite sides of the upper. The sneaker also includes a split midsole, a nod to Smith’s previous model, which similarly included a midsole in the shape of a platform.

Smith first debuted the 0.01 model at Coachella last April, while performing on stage with his sister, Willow. The former FN cover star then shared another exclusive early look of the sneaker at a pre-release event at New Balance’s Japanese flagship store New Balance T-House in August.

The son of much-buzzed-about Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith has been a New Balance ambassador since 2019, and this collaboration marks his third launch with the athletic company.

Smith and New Balance delivered their first collaborative sneaker in July 2020, a bold look dubbed the Vision Racer. The Vision Racer — which New Balance said was inspired by the X-Racer and 1700 silhouettes, both favorites of Smith — is aesthetically bold, and its defining characteristic is its chunky midsole. Aside from the eye-catching design, Smith’s creation with New Balance is vegan-friendly and sustainable, with every element is made with partially recycled materials.

The duo’s second collab dropped in July 2021. Called the Trippy Summer Pack, the launch included two new colorways of the New Balance x Jaden Smith Vision Racer as well as apparel for the first time in the lineup. Styles includes a hoodie and t-shirt that incorporate kaleidoscopic graphics from Smith’s past and future album artwork.

The latest New Balance x MSFTSrep 0.01, which retails for $110, will launch later this year.
