Pharrell Williams has never been one to conform. In fact, it’s that defiant attitude that’s made him one of the most innovative creators of our time. Therefore, in his latest venture with adidas, he opts to mold new silhouettes in lieu of recreating elder models – a road less traveled where sneaker collaborations are concerned.
The Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals “Pink Beach” Collection effectively validates the adidas Elastic Lace Up and Elastic Slip On, respectively. Each models come in two colorways, one of which in White/Fairway Green like the OG Stan Smith and another in a patterned, multicolored base with black and brown accents at the tongue and heel. Skateboard’s logo then hits the heel on each pair.
Hanon indicates the release is set for May 5. Stay tuned for potential U.S. release details.
