You’ll have to pardon the pun, but Pharrell is adding value to the Human Race with this new collabo
The Adidas x Pharrell Tennis “HU” is out This Saturday 6th May 2017 for £94.95. You can expect this release to be extremely difficult to secure. Why you ask ? well, have you had a look at the resale value of Pharrell’s last Adidas NMD “Human Race” collaboration ?
Not only did the generation defining artists’ last Adidas NMD collaboration sell out in seconds… literally seconds, but you’ll struggle to find a pair on the resale market for less than four times the retail price….YIKES
But enough about that, this post is about the Tennis HU’s. The design itself clearly pays homage to classic Adidas tennis shoe designs like the Stan Smith. But the tongue, heal and outsole appear to be hybrids of the alphabounce and the Adizero bounce.
Designed to be light the upper is made of the ever popular breathable Adidas primeknit and EVA technology outsole (as seen on the alphabounce). This instantly makes the shoe a must have for the upcoming summer months of heat and sunshine.
The shoes will release in two colourways, the first being a crispy and warm white, yellow and gold. The second iteration comes in the classic white and green that will be familiar to fans of the Stan Smith and Adicolor superstars.
At £94.05 we would strongly recommend being up early on Saturday as it’s likely loyal fans of both Pharrell’s sneaker collabs with Adidas and his futureproof music will hoping to get their hands on them (it’s highly likely people will be camping out from Friday afternoon or evening).
At £94.95…..the shoes will be super accessible, so be prepared.
