Back in February, Pharrell and adidas debuted a new silhouette for the singer at the 747 Warehouse event in Los Angeles. Now, Williams and the Three Stripes are gearing up to release the special silhouette with a “CNY” theme.

The new Pharrell Crazy BYW was originally released in extremely limited numbers as a prototype. Now, the new shoe is finally seeing a second release sometime this season. Constructed with a fully Primeknit upper, the Crazy BYW Hu will make its second release in the “Chinese New Year” theme, joining the Pharrell Solar Glide Hu for the collection. The latest addition to Pharrell’s family of adidas sneakers brings some big changes to the BYW platform. The new silhouette appears as a cross between the two consumer pairs already available: the BYW LVL 1 and BYW X. The Primeknit upper on the BYW Hu retains the general shape of the first iteration and features the thick ankle collar of the court-ready pair. The new “CNY” theme covers the upper in a vibrant red base, with a gold scale-like pattern across the shoe. Yellow stripes start at the toe, and circle around the shoe to the lateral side, while the bold AMBITION branding stretches up the center. The midsole splits a white Boost heel pod with a yellow forefoot, while a shiny gold TPU plate joins the two in the center.


Pharrell and adidas are preparing to release their new “Chinese New Year” Crazy BYW Hu on February 15th at retailers like Footshop. Check out the official images below for a closer look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Pharrell x adidas news.
