As we gear up for the release of Pharrell Williams and adidas Originalsvivid yellow NMD Hu, two new monochrome colorways of the collaborative sneaker have surfaced — one in pink, and the other in “Aqua.”

The pink pair is this drops star of the show, serving pastel tones all across the sneaker’s Primeknit upper, full-length BOOST midsole, TPU plugs, cage, outsole, and even for the tonal branding that runs over the vamp.

Whereas the yellow pair features Hindi letters on its upper, this pink pair opts for Kanji syllabary that is barely decipherable thanks to its complementing tones that blend into the Primeknit. It leads the eye up to the shoe’s signature lacing component, this time around appearing in a cream tone with grey speckles all over the rope laces. At the rear, you’ll find leather heel tabs graced with Pharrell Williams and adidas Originals’ Trefoil branding on the left and right foot respectively.

For the “Aqua” pair, the duo opt for a similar color-blocked theme that focuses on blue tones. This pair, however, also sports blue laces that are finished with black Three Stripe-branded aglets. Inside the shoe you’ll also spot a black liner, which is the same as that found on the pink pair.

Both Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals NMD Hu sneakers are set to release on November 7 at stockists such as Nice Kicks for $220 USD each. Take a closer look at the pairs above.
