Pharrell Williams and adidas are always working on something new. The latest footwear to leak from the pair features the signature Hu name and look, albeit with a special new Chinese New Year twist.
The Pharrell Williams x adidas line of footwear is expanding once more. After the initial release of the Pharrell x adidas Solar Glide Hu earlier this year, a new special edition colorway of the sleek new runner has surfaced online. adidas’ Solar family was first released back in 2015 as a comfortable alternative to the more high-end running shoes from the brand. Now, the Three Stripes is redesigning their past model in several new constructions, alongside a Pharrell Williams cosign.
The new color scheme of Pharrell’s take on the adidas Solar Glide sees the N.E.R.D. musician celebrating yet another international holiday. This time, Skateboard P is celebrating his fascination with China, decorating the Solar Glide Hu in a Chinese New Year themed color scheme. The Primeknit body of the silhouette is divided into different sections, with the heel and toe box made from bright red threads. The midfoot panels come in black, while the TPU lacing system stands out again in red. Thin gold detailing can be seen lining the edges of the silhouette, while Pharrell’s usual messages are scrawled across the toe box in white.
The Pharrell Williams x adidas Solar Glide Hu “CNY” has not been announced for release, though they will likely release sometime around the holiday, which begins on February 5th in 2019.
