Back in 2015, the NMD was, without a doubt, one of the most iconic sneaker lines the world has ever seen, to the point that people were paying on upwards of $1,000 for a pair. While hype surrounding the silhouette definitely isn't what it used to be, Pharrell and adidas are hoping to bring it all back with the Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD S1 RYAT "Core Black Solar Red." Giving the latest S1 model a rugged and ready revamp, the result is a sneaker and boot hybrid that's ready to take on Winter.
Painted in a stealthy core black scheme, Skateboard P's take on the NMD S1 completely reworks the sock-like silhouette. Fortified with beefy TPU accents and durable taping, this all works on top of a ballistic mesh and buttery suede base that combines form and function. Bright blue dots feature across the lateral and medial ankle portion, while the heel boasts an oversized solar red pull tab for added convenience. Underneath, gone are the days of the exposed Boost midsole in favor of a translucent unit that offers an extra chunky vibe. This is then lined with a series of Trefoil logos underneath, nodding to the legendary Marathon from the 1980s, which featured the exact same design element. All of this comes packed within a special edition shoebox, finalizing the design.
The Pharrell Williams x adidas Hu NMD S1 RYAT Core Black Solar Red is dropping in men's sizes for $250 at adidas, the CONFIRMED app, and select retailers online and in-store, worldwide. Expected to release on October 15th, 2022, you definitely do not want to miss these.
