Like with most Hu NMD releases, there’s been leaks and rumours of an upcoming BBC colab for months. We first saw a candy-striped sample back in February, but as we approach the supposed October release date a new make-up has appeared on our feeds.
Leaked by the ever-reliable Yeezy Mafia and shawnlee1978, the latest Hu keeps the thick stripes of the previous sample but opts for a navy and pink scheme. It also sports the Chinese characters for ‘heart’ and ‘mind’. Initial renders by YM showed the shoes would carry the words in English, but they were noticeably absent from the first samples; it looks like the Mafia were right all along.
When asked about the original colourway, the sneaker sleuths said they're not BBC exclusive, which suggests they still might drop. We'll let you know if there's any developments on that front.
These don’t have an exact date yet but expect them to hit BBC stores in October.
