adidas and Pharrell are back for 2019. After several weeks of leaks and rumors, the two have finally unveiled their Chinese New Year pack, featuring the Crazy BYW X and Solar Glide Hu in a distinct red and gold construction.

Pharrell and adidas are starting the year off with a bright new release. After a slight decline in sales in 2018, the two are ready to retake the new year with a fresh new start. To help kick off the revitalized releases, adidas and Pharrell are covering their two latest silhouettes with a vibrant Chinese New Year colorway. Dressing both the Solar Glide and Crazy BYW X in red and gold, the two new colorways have finally been announced to release this month.

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 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” footwear on January 26th, 2019. Both the Crazy BYW X and the Solar Glide will release from both adidas and select retailers, priced at $250 and $150 respectively.
