On the other hand, the adilette-esque PW BOOST Slide boasts a full BOOST foam footbed and is done up in tonal tan with simple yellow, powder blue and peach accents plus a powder blue with dashes of red, tan and seafoam blue-green.

The Pharrell x NIGO x adidas Originals “Friendship” pack will release globally — save for the first of the two sandals, which is a Japan exclusive — on December 18 via the adidas webstore. Shoes are priced at $180 USD and sandals at $100 USD.
