Pharrell Williams‘ partnership with
The artist is well-known for getting pairs of adidas sneakers early, having previously been one of the first to show off the aforementioned NMD S1. However, that pair was just a general release sneaker, and from the pictures uploaded to his account yesterday, it seems that this new take is collaborative.
Sitting on a small bike at Abu Dhabi’s Vegetable Market, Pharrell showcases an all-weather boot footwear style that’s fitted with the BOOST-equipped NMD S1 sole unit. In fact, the pair could be a dark-themed iteration of the previously seen adidas HU NMD S1 RYAT, as it too features “HUMANRACE” branding on the tongue alongside a brightly colored webbing heel tab and pops of blue on the mid-panels.
3M laces in black echo the ones found on the alternative S1 RYAT, subsequently rounding out the pair. Looking to cop? GOAT has pairs right now.
Take a closer look at the teased pair above, and stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for more information as news unfolds.
