adidas and Pharrell Williams are preparing to kick off 2023 in style with an all-new collaborative release. The duo’s long-lasting partnership continues to push out reimagined kicks every year, recently dropping a football-inspired Humanrace Samba collection.

Pharrell’s Humanrace line is now setting its sights on the adidas NMD S1, seen on Williams himself at the Billionaire Boys Club x New York Yankees launch in August. The sneaker has now received official imagery and is set to hit retailers very soon.

The fairly new model geared toward the lifestyle market is now given a striking makeover, while a similar build to the original is maintained throughout, accompanied by renewed details that give it a new life. The minimalistic take is delivered with an all-over canvas construction and striped of all Three Stripes decor, instead replaced with wavy Humanrace lettering that flows from the medials and onto the toe boxes.

Titled “MAUBS,” the clean-cut model is presented in a dominant beige palette, while the rears are asymmetrically dipped in “Cobalt Blue.” Off-balanced rope laces sit atop knitted tongues in a slightly lighter hue, completing the pair with split-dyed rubber sole units fashioned with linear plaques and Trefoil grips on the outsoles.

Take a closer look at the Pharrell x adidas Humanrace NMD S1 “MAUBS” in the gallery above. The shoe has just dropped at select shops and will be arriving at further adidas retail partners on January 21.
