Three new regional-exclusive colourways of the once popular Human Race NMD silhouette are about to drop this week on October 25, 2020.
The “Crystal White” colourway will be an Asia Pacific exclusive, while a “Sand Reflective” version of the shoe will only be available in North America.
There is also a limited edition “Dash Green”, of which only 7777 pairs will be made available globally.
Similar to Kanye’s YEEZY line with adidas, Pharrell Williams’s Hu line has been highly sought after over the last few years.
Check out the pairs below.
Pharrell Williams and adidas are set to release a brand new sneaker collection called “PROUD”, consisting of four new colourways for the NMD Hu silhouette.
The sneakers are set to drop globally and in Singapore at the end of August.
The four colourways are Cream White, Solar Yellow, Hyper Pop and Core Black.
The Cream White and Core Black are fairly self-explanatory, but the Solar Yellow takes on a fellow neon highlighter aesthetic, while the Hyper Pop is a bright pink colour scheme.
All four pairs come with a grippy gum sole.
The collection will arrive in Singapore on August 31 and can be purchased on adidas.com.sg for SGD340 each.

adidas Originals is teaming up with Billionaire Boys Club once again on a special collaborative release for Spring/Summer 2019.
Designed by the man behind the Billionaire Boys Club and the NMD Hu, Pharrell Williams, the release sees a new take on the silhouette with the use of BBC’s distinctive Digijiack plaid pattern on its uppers.
Embroidered text in true NMD Hu fashion takes centre stage on the forefoot, reading ‘Heart’ and “Mind’ on the right and left foot, respectively.
Pharrell Williams and adidas are back with new colourways of their highly successful NMD Hu silhouette, this time with the “Inspiration Pack”.
The collection features large Chinese text with uplifting words such as “Inspire” and “Empower”, in line with Pharrell’s vision of his Human Race line.
Four colourways make up the collection, namely a Black, White, Clear Sky and Power Blue edition.
The pairs are confirmed to drop in Singapore on November 10, after adidas Singapore posted on Facebook regarding the launch.
The release will take place both online and in-store. For physical purchases, adidas will be releasing the shoes as adidas Originals Pacific Plaza and adidas Originals Vivo City.

Limited edition sneakers may be all the rage these days, but they’ve got nothing on these latest custom sneakers by New York-based artist Ceeze.
Combining the luxurious leather prints of Louis Vuitton on an adidas NMD Hu, the pair will set you back far more than the current resale prices of the latest adidas NMD “Solar Hu”.
The prints are taken from the darker “Eclipse” monogram print, repurposed from an LV 45mm Keepall Duffle Bag.
The customs are available now from Ceeze for a cool US$2,850, which will take 3-4 months to complete and will require you to provide the base pair.
Should you require Ceeze to source for the base, that price will increase by US$200 – a decent price for an NMD Hu.
Take a closer look at the custom pair below.
Pharrell Williams and adidas are back with a brand new entry to their highly fruitful NMD Hu partnership.

The pack contains tribal motifs with African inspired design, which can be seen throughout the upper.
Originally called the “Afro” Pack, the upcoming collection will be dropping on August 18 worldwide. Although we only have images of two colourways, a rumoured third is also expected to be included.

Pharrell Williams may be a hit-maker when it comes to his music but the singer-producer has been making bigger waves in recent years thanks to his adidas Human Race sneaker lines.
The most popular, of course, is the NMD Hu, which has seen crowds amass in droves just to get their hands on the latest drop and we now have a preview of its upcoming colourways.
This November, word has it that Pharrell and adidas are set to release a brand new collection called the “Inspiration Pack”, consisting of four distinct colourways.
As always, funky colour combinations are present in the collection with the likes of blue/pink and baby blue/yellow, although pairs in muted black and clean white provide a safer choice for the fashionably conservative.
The pack will arrive several months after the African-inspired “Afro Pack”, which is expected to drop in August. For a closer look at the “Inspiration Pack”, check out the Instagram post below.
Do note that these images are illustrations by insider group Yeezy Mafia, based on the colour descriptions of the pairs and will most likely differ from the actual shoes.
After an Indian-inspired “Powder Dye” pack in conjunction with Holi Festival, Pharrell Williams and adidas are turning to another Asian powerhouse as its latest muse.
Taking inspiration from the concept of Yin and Yang, the upcoming NMD Hu collection features four colour options, each representing the four natural elements of metal (Jin), fire (Huo), wood (Mu), and water (Shui).
In line with Pharrell’s goal of promoting peace and love with his Human Race brand, each of the pairs will feature one of the words “Happy,” “Peace,” “Passion,” and “Youth” on the right side of the pair, with the left taking on the Chinese equivalent.
adidas revealed the inspiration behind the sneaker pack along with official product shots against beautiful backdrops.
The pack is expected to be exclusive to China, with the Gold colourway limited to only 300 pairs and reserved for friends and family.
For a closer look at the shots, check them out below.

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.[caption id="attachment_12920" align="alignnone" width="1000"] Image: @crookpion[/caption] [caption id="attachment_12919" align="alignnone" width="1000"] Image: @crookpion[/caption] [caption id="attachment_12918" align="alignnone" width="1000"] Image: @crookpion[/caption]
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.[caption id="attachment_12917" align="alignnone" width="780"] Image: Sneaker Bar Detroit[/caption] [caption id="attachment_12916" align="alignnone" width="780"] Image: Sneaker Bar Detroit[/caption]
