If you’re talking dynamic duos, there’s a strong case to be made that Pharrell and NIGO are the Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen of street culture. Over the course of the two’s decades-long friendship, they’ve done everything from start Billionaire Boys Club in 2003 to work together on a three-pack of adidas Hu sneakers in 2019. Now, for their latest project they’ve linked with adidas Originals once again for a four-style “Friendship” pack consisting of two takes on the Tokio Solar Hu and the PW BOOST slide.

A modern-day reinterpretation of adidas‘ archival Tokio, the Tokio Solar Hu features a trim Primeknit upper with suede overlays, leather Three Stripe graphics and an elongated heel tab, all atop a trim BOOST midsole and Continental rubber outsole. Here, it’s produced in a warm orange colorway with soft red and blue accents and a seafoam blue-green makeup that adds everything from tan to rich navy, bright red and calming lilac.

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. Its signature detail arrives on the strap, where embroidered Japanese characters that translate to “You” and “Me” serve as a nod to NIGO’s heritage.

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.
