UPDATE: It looks like Pharrell's rosey red HU NMD may be closer than we'd thought. Although official info around the release is yet to surface, @shoe_butter has managed to snag a pair ahead of the rest. Jealous? We are. Load up your Paypal and stay tuned for more news.
Pharrell Williams took his collaborative Three Stripes partnership to new heights in 2016 with the debut of the Hu NMD. Vested with the humanitarian spirit, Skateboard P's spin on the NMD hit stores in a bevy of bright colourways. While we have been yet to see any Hu NMDs since the last drop in September, social media leaks suggest that at least two new colourways are on the way.
The first leak came from adidas' vice president of global entertainment & influencer marketing, Jon Wexler. On his Instagram account, Wexler posted a pair that looks to be either crimson or fuschia in colour and features the Japanese characters for humanity embroidered across the toe. The second leak comes courtesy of Pharrell himself, who was snapped chilling by a pool wearing a tan colourway. Accented with bright yellow and orange, the pair features what appears to be the words 'BREATHE' and 'WALK' embroidered in black on the upper.
No official release details have been announced for either new Hu NMD colourway previewed, but we'll keep you updated soon as more info is revealed.
