Last month, Chanel’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld revealed that he would be teaming up with skatewear giant Vans just in time for fashion month. This game changing move blurred the line between high fashion and streetwear, and now, it looks like the German fashion designer is prepping for his next big sneaker.
Teaming up with the one and only Pharrell Williams, we got a very brief glimpse of these coveted kicks earlier today, but the Yeezy Mafia have just unveiled a few high quality renders to give the sneaker community our best look yet. Unlike the Hindi that we showcased yesterday, these Chanel branded NMDs make use of the signature Trail outsole that will be debuting on Human Races later this year.
Featuring a pitch black upper, the right shoe is embroidered with Pharrell’s name and the left will feature Chanel’s logo. A pair of simple black laces tie the sneaker together, and the French fashion house’s iconic ‘CC’ motif is present around the heel portion of the Nomads.
Like every NMD Human Race that has dropped since the beginning of time, these will make use of the vibrant human body inspired insoles, giving the sneakers a pop of colour. They will also sit on top of a full length Boost midsole, so you can walk comfortably whether you’re on the street or on the catwalk.
Pretty much nothing else is known about the Pharrell Williams x Chanel x adidas Originals NMD Hu Trail, but according to the Yeezy Mafia, the high fashion NMDs will be available soon, so keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for news as it develops!
