This Autumn, Pharrell Williams and adidas debut Hu, a collection of shoes that explores humanity and celebrates cultural diversity around the world. Hu represents Pharrell’s vision of connecting people through love, passion, energy, and colour.
‘Hu is short for human – human being, human race, humankind,’ said Pharrell. ‘But Hu, itself is also a reference to color. As human beings, we all have a color. We all look different, we all speak different languages, but we’re all connected.’
Releasing in 5 new colorways: scarlet, black, sharp blue, green, and tangerine. The shoes feature adidas Primeknit ™uppers, energy-returning white adidas Boost™midsoles, and a breakthrough lacing system in which laces are woven through the stabilizer of the shoe’s cage, offering both support and freedom. The shoe also boasts an internal toe cap for a unique shape and a new modernized curved collar.
Each color is printed with its own split slogan, such as “Hu Race,” “Human Species,”or “Hue Man.” Instantly eye-catching with their bold visual language, these pieces form the foundation of the adidas Originals = PHARRELL WILLIAMS wardrobe for the coming season.
