Here’s Our Best Look Yet at Pharrell’s Upcoming adidas NMD “Afro Hu”

Pharrell Williams and adidas are a winning combination and the duo are set to release a brand new NMD Hu collaboration in the Fall.

A follow-up to the highly successful “Powder Dye” collection in celebration of India’s Holi Festival, the “Afro Hu” pays tribute to the African continent, the home of human civilisation.

The three-piece collection will feature Afro-centric design cues and is particularly evident in its colour combinations. Close-up images of one of the three surfaced online in low-key fashion back in February, giving us a taste of what’s the come in the second half of the year.

From the shots, its clear that tribal motifs play a huge part of the aesthetics, alongside the clever use of African beads on the heel tab.

The shoe’s collar also features coloured dots to mimic the look of ankle bead bracelets from afar, adding on to the African theme.

In addition to this up-close images, photos from @presentedby gives us a decent side profile of the two remaining pairs.

A Possible Pharrell x BAPE x adidas NMD Human Race Collaboration Surfaces Online

Somethings are just impossible to ignore, so when The ACE Family posted a video of their Christmas gifts, a pair of shoes stuck out like a sore thumb.

Amidst Austin McBroom’s collection of NMD Human Races and the Neighborhood x Invincible NMD R1 was a never-seen-before NMD colourway that donned BAPE’s iconic camo print and design.

More notably, the silhouette of the camo printed pair was that of the NMD Human Race, made in collaboration with Pharrell Williams.

As previously reported, the upcoming sneakers will come in two colourways – white and green, and white and gold, as shown above.

In a press release, adidas confirmed that the Tennis Hu will retail for S$199 and will be available at adidas Originals Pacific Plaza and on the adidas SG  from 3pm-9pm on May 5. Winners will be notified by 10pm on the same day.
