Though their partnership isn’t pumping out colorways and models as much as it it used to, Pharrell Williams and adidas continue to explore the themes of humanity and nature through their releases. For some time, their focus shifted from the NMD silhouette that popularized the collaboration, but it seems like the two have returned to their roots with June's release of the Orange Animal Print pair and now we are getting another wild print in the, Pharrell Williams x adidas Hu NMD Animal Print Blue.
Coming in the typical Hu NMD construction, the silhouette gets covered in a tight Primeknit upper that comes in an altered blue. Cheetah print splatters in yellow and black cover the sneaker's blue upper. Along the heel portion, the exoskeleton cage gets a semi-translucent orange makeover with volt green laces positioned nearby, though an extra set of orange laces can be swapped if you’d like. A co-branded orange heel tab is embossed with both "adidas" and "Pharrell Williams," split between the left and right pair respectively. Rounding out the look is the blue exposed Boost midsole paired with a black rubber outsole.
The Pharrell Williams x adidas Hu NMD Animal Print Blue is scheduled to release on August 13th, 2022 through adidas and select Three Stripes retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $220.
