For adidas, it continues to navigate how to approach its post-Ye and now post-Beyonce era. Spearheading the charge forward, its key collaborative impact — outside of the luxury partnerships that price out the masses — now rests in the hands of Pharrell, Grace Wales BonnerBad Bunny and Jerry Lorenzo. For Skateboard P, his contributions to the Three Stripes as of late have come from expanding on his apparel options and multiple sneaker silhouettes. At the tail end of last year, this included the launch of the Humanrace Samba, landing on shelves alongside complementary clothing options.

Following its debut, we now have a look at a new “Lilac” color of the sneaker that takes things in a spring-ready direction. According to Tyler Mansour on Instagram — who was seeded this pair early — the shoe has been outfitted with premium lilac leather and matching rawhide laces. Its tonal presentation brings out the colorway’s intricate detailing, offering a fresh approach to the ever-popular silhouette. Adding to the experience, a custom lilac shoe box, Humanrace dustbag and alternate laces have been prepared as well.

As of now, no information regarding the Pharrell x adidas Humanrace Samba “Lilac” has been disclosed by either party. Based on the pair’s seeding at this time, it’s safe to expect it to be landing on shelves in the near future via adidas and Humanrace at a price of $200 USD.
