In recent months, Pharrell Williams’ Adidas collab has relied heavily on the revival of the NMD Hu model in a kaleidoscope of colors, but a new sneaker will be added to the mix soon.
Previewed recently on Pharrell’s social media through both his own on-foot shoes and with some help from Lil Uzi Vert, the new Pharrell x Adidas Humanrace Sičhona sneaker is set to release soon. Based on the teaser shots, we can see that the shoes use a sock-like Primeknit upper and a midsole that is likely encapsulated with Boost foam, but the latter has not yet been confirmed.
Despite these teasers, Adidas has confirmed that the green Pharrell x Adidas Humanrace Sičhona colorway seen here is a friends and family exclusive and will not be available when the sneaker releases.
Readers can expect the Pharrell x Adidas Humanrace Sičhona to debut this summer. Check back soon for more details.
UPDATE (08/17): Adidas has officially unveiled Pharrell’s newest sneaker—the Humanrace Sičhona. According to the Three Stripes, the shoe’s moniker is inspired by the indigenous phrase “Sičhona,” which means connecting to the earth. It features a unique design that mimics the feeling of walking barefoot on the ground. The Pharrell x Adidas Humanrace Sičhona will debut in the blue-based colorway pictured below on Aug. 27 at Adidas.com/Pharrell and at select Adidas retailers for $180.
