Best Buds: Pharrell x Nigo x adidas ‘Friendship’ PackRelease: 18 December 2020
Pharrell Williams and Nigo go back a long way – decades in fact – to the heady days of early Japanese streetwear. Their professional and personal relationship remains rock solid, and they’re celebrating that fact with a new adidas collaboration dubbed the ‘Friendship’ pack. After all, both parties have also had longstanding partnerships with the Three Stripes.
Consisting of the PW BOOST Slide and Tokio Solar Hu, Pharrell and Nigo put their personal touch with bright colourways and cosy materials. The PW BOOST Slide is a new leisure model that combines the easy-wearing slide design with full-length BOOST soles for supreme comfort, especially when paired with extra wide padded straps and faux massage footbeds. Meanwhile, the Tokio Solar Hu takes on a smorgasbord of fantastical colours in vibrant blues, oranges, pinks and purples. It’s an interesting anachronism of old-school mesh and microfibre layered uppers attached to BOOST midsoles taken from adi’s top-end running shoes. The result is an equally good-looking and comfortable sneaker. Finishing touches across all pairs in the pack include embroidered and stamped characters reading ‘You’ and ‘Me’, Hu logos, and flecked laces.
The Pharrell x Nigo x adidas ‘Friendship’ pack will release on December 18 via the adidas webstore and selected global retailers.
