adidas Originals Pharrell Williams Tennis Hu Shoes
Pharrell Williams and adidas have enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship in recent years, with the genre-defying artist designing his own custom Stan Smith trainers among other things. But for the first time, the singer has designed his first signature shoe with the Three Stripes, and we think it’s a beauty. Introducing the adidas Originals Pharrell Williams Tennis Hu Shoes.
Along with adidas Originals, the Pharrell Williams Hu celebrates the hues of humanity. The Hu, a shortening of ‘human,’ takes its inspiration directly to two adidas classics. Coming in two introductory colour accents, the Green pays homage to the original Stan Smith, while the Yellow iteration ties directly to the 1970s adidas Forest Hill sneaker.
The signature shoes are made of flexible Primeknit which adapts to the shape of your foot and also allows for lightweight breathability. The Primeknit is paired with a lightweight EVA midsole, complete with a waffle design and an outsole with rubber inserts.
The lacing system builds directly into the shoe’s body and the tongue features a suede tab with the adidas Originals insignia. Things are naturally finished off with Neoprene tongue lining, synthetic suede heel lining and, of course, adidas’ signature perforated 3-Stripes.
Available in two colourways, the adidas Originals Pharrell Williams Tennis Hu Shoes are available from tomorrow (Saturday 6th May) at 9am over at the adidas Website, where they’ll set you back £94.95 a pair.
