In recent weeks, Pharrell Williams and adidas Originals have revisited the inaugural form of their collaborative Hu NMD, releasing the “Extra Eye” pack alongside other co-made sneakers, and now the shoe is set to return in a new “Glory Grey/Dash Green/Sand” colorway.
With that being said, this new pair does switch up the Hu NMD’s style quite a bit. While the full-length BOOST midsole complete with its low-profile outsole remains, the upper has been given an overhaul using Primeknit fabric. A padded white fabric base is housed underneath a daring Primeknit net that is finished with silver-toned embroidery on the vamp of each foot.
Joining this is a translucent “Dash Green” lace cage that sits on the sides, becoming a part of the “Sand” BOOST sole and its complementing midsole plugs. White 3M-equipped laces wrap over the upper, bringing the eye towards the white collar trim and padded interior.
At the rear, the sneaker is finished with its signature leather adidas Trefoil-branded tab in baby blue with white embossing. A black rubber outsole rounds out the pair.
Pharrell’s adidas Originals Hu NMD “Glory Grey/Dash Green/Sand” is set to release exclusively on adidas’ app on October 25 at 8:30 a.m. BST (3:30 a.m. EST) for £179.95 GBP (approx. $234 USD). Take a closer look at the pair above.
