Speaking on his new ties to New Balance, Mars say he clearly saw the correlation between the shoes and the life of a Hip-Hop DJ.
“Business wise,as far as New Balance is concerned, I saw a clear lane for them to drive through. The companies selling point is that they are a great running shoe brand,plain and simple. People in my line of work run around the globe for a living. So creatively New Balance allowed me to share several stories of how we all run our lives. We all may not be athletes but we share the common bond of running our careers[…] My goal is to exemplify how the brand can be equally as important to athletes and non athletes alike. Whatever ones lifestyle is,be it entertainer,parent,casual walker,college student running late to his next class,New Balance has a place in their lives.”
