Weekly Wreckoning: Adidas x Pharrell Hu NMD

Weekly Wreckoning: Adidas x Pharrell Hu NMD

Okay so here's the thing, literally every time Pharrell and Adidas get together I'm like hell yeah super dope, shits about to be popping right? Then every single time the goods finally drop it ends up looking like some shit that Jared Leto would wear to Coachella with like a mesh leather tank top and that's just not my scene. So now they're doing this Hu NMD and staying true to form, it is garish as hell but hey who gives a fuck because the combined hype of Adidas and Pharrell could literally sell a pair of Toms to a hypebeast..Oh wait nvm they already did that one.

The profile, disregarding the solid school-bus yellow Primeknit emblazoned with the words "Human Race" (which is the actual definition of on-the-nose), is decent. The Primeknit NMD is extremely comfortable and that boost wedge ensures that nobody will mistake your heat for Roshes. Adidas tweeted that they're using a "newly designed" lacing system which is VERY obviously just the lacing that the Y-3 Qasa has had but hey, they've been taking cues/pretty much just stealing ideas from Yohji since the first Tubular so it must be fine now.

If I was gunna style these joints (on not Jared Leto) I would probably put them with an all drab tactical aesthetic like Acronym because then maybe it'd come off all future-warrior-monk -ish? Or if you struglords (R.I.P. to the Pins) don't have the extra stack and a half to drop on a new rain jacket and cargo pants then...I guess just find a bellhop, beat the shit out of him, take his jacket and do your thing. If anybody hassles you, just blame it all on the boy, Mr. Williams, himself.

In all seriousness though, you should buy this shoe because Pharrell seems like a super chill dude in real life and if you manage to snake a pair you can try to sell it for 3,700 smackers on Grailed and watch it sit for the next 3 months. Find them at the Billionaire Boys Club shop this Friday, the 22nd or at the Adidas Flagships on August 25th. Happy hunting, gang.
