Pharrell Williams x Adidas Human Race NMD TR History
Well-known singer, record, and film producer, rapper, and songwriter Pharrell Williams first branched into designing with Japanese brand, Nigo, in 2005. After that, it was a series of ventures after ventures until he signed on for a long-term partnership with Adidas in 2014.
In 2016, Pharell and Adidas came out with the line “Hu.” The Hu is taken from Dow Chemical’s advertising promotion where human (Hu) is depicted as the missing element in the periodic table. The Adidas x Pharrell shoe collection’s theme is about people from all walks of life coming together to understand each other and is mainly inspired by Native American culture, specifically the MHA Nation in North Dakota.
The first release was in a yellow colorway and was only available in selected retailers. The succeeding release was in September and contained five NMD shoes in black, green, scarlet, sharp blue, and tangerine. It had a thick Primeknit upper, 3M laces, and a unique lacing system. Words such as “Hu,” “Race,” “Human,” and “Species” were stitched on the shoe’s upper depending on the colorway. The collection was limited and sold out fast.
In November 2017, another Human Race wave was released. It had much of the same details of the first Hu collection, but this time, the shoe was given trail functionality and now sported a grippy rubber outsole underneath the Boost cushioning. This newer collection was named the Pharrell Williams x Adidas Human Race NMD TR (Trail).
Pharrell Williams x Adidas Human Race NMD TR Style
Three of the Human Race NMD TR colorways are vibrant enough to catch attention. Wear them with understated or muted colors so the focus will be on your footwear. Black jeans will show off the colors very well. For the black colorway, blue jeans will work. Feel free to add a bright jacket or shirt to top it off.
