Pharrell and adidas team-up once again, and this time it's to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Releasing this weekend, the pack contains both the adidas BYW and Solar HU Glide models.
The new colour scheme of Pharrell’s take on the adidas Solar Glide sees the N.E.R.D. musician celebrating yet another international holiday. This time, Pharrell is celebrating his fascination with China, decorating the Solar Hu Glide in a Chinese New Year themed colour scheme.
The Primeknit body of the silhouette is divided into different sections, with the heel and toe box made from bright red threads. The midfoot panels come in black, while the TPU lacing system stands out again in red. Thin gold detailing can be seen lining the edges of the silhouette, while Pharrell’s usual messages are scrawled across the toe box in white.
Next is his adidas BYW. Like all of this team’s projects, peace and positivity take center stage, with “AMBITION” boldly printed on this iteration’s forefoot. For an extra special CNY-friendly touch, this BYW’s upper sees a dragon scale-like pattern embroidered into its Primeknit upper, while a stark white BOOST-laden heel piece adds a touch of needed contrast in an effort to neutralize the flashy design.
