The past few months have seen Pharrell Williams release a slew of new sneakers, including both a N.E.R.D.-inspired adidas Originals Hu NMD and a “New York Tennis” pack of the Tennis Hu silhouette. For his next collaborative shoe, it looks like Pharrell could also be working with French luxury fashion house Chanel on a joint adidas Originals Hu NMD Trail, with images of a potential sneaker recently leaking. This wouldn’t be the first time that Pharrell has worked with the brand, having appeared in a campaign video for Chanel’s Gabrielle bag earlier this year.
The collaboration takes on the previously-unreleased Hu NMD Trail silhouette, which comes with a BOOST midsole and a grooved outsole. According to the leak, the sneaker’s upper is all-black Primeknit, with the word “PHARRELL” embroidered down the left shoe and “CHANEL” down the length of the right. There aren’t many details on the release, but Yeezy Mafia confirmed that the sneakers were “coming soon” and that — though not friends and family — they would have an “expensive retail price.“
As well as working on his latest adidas Originals releases, Pharrell recently stepped out in a previously-unseen N.E.R.D. x HUMAN MADE jacket.
