After previewing various colorways, and even a version in traditional chinese, Pharrell William's highly coveted "Human Race" sneaker collab with Adidas finally dropped at select retailers on July 22.
Williams is definitely no stranger to success, neither in music nor fashion ventures, having ridden the wave of triumph months in succession; in May he dropped his extremely colorful Adidas Original collab "Pink Beach" collection, in June his Adidas Original x Billionaire Boys Club collab "Palm Tree Pack" was finally made available to the public, and now in July, his "Human Race" NMDs have finally released. Let's take a closer look at the shoe.
The new releases have been constructed with the extremely popular NMD silhouette, with the text 'Human' written in black vertically down the yellow upper of the left shoe and 'Race' on the right. The lacing passes through a black cage connected to the traditional Boost midsole allowing the laces to be comfortably collected atop the shoe's tongue. The heel collar is square, but round, giving the shoe a turtle neck type appearance.
Williams is a seasoned veteran when it comes to curating vibes, and no doubt this release, retailing for about $240, won't be an easy cop. No fear though- I doubt this will be the sneaker's only release due to how many variations of the sneaker Pharrell has been teasing.
Nonetheless, when Adidas and Pharrell come together, magic is made.
