After releasing a rainbow of NMD Human Race sneakers in 2016, Pharrell Williams and Adidas Originals appear to be gearing up for another collaboration.
In recent weeks, Williams has been spotted in a new co-branded model. He wore the unreleased kicks Tuesday while sitting front row with Anna Wintour at Chanel’s fall ’17 show, pairing the design with bright red Adidas track pants.
While collab specifics remain a mystery, there are a handful of details that can be confirmed based on the images seen thus far. The shoe’s tongue label features the same logo found on Williams’ NMDs, which suggests that the design will be part of the popular Pharrell x Adidas Human Race franchise.
Also of note is the sneaker’s construction, which deviates from the Boost cushioning seen on Williams’ NMDs in favor of foam tooling. The upper makes use of a mesh-like knit, although it’s not known if it uses Adidas Primeknit technology.
One of the most striking features of the mysterious shoes is the bright green heel branding, which bears a strong resemblance to the iconic Adidas Stan Smith.
In addition to this unreleased collaboration, Williams shared a photo last week that included a first look at a “Multicolor” Human Race NMD.
