Let’s face it, fans weren’t exactly impressed with Pharrell’s Afro-inspired Hu NMD Collection. Maybe it was the funky use of colours or that block writing which covered much of the Primeknit.

It was obnoxiously loud, not always a bad trait in footwear but somehow, it just didn’t seem to work on this chunky NMD. Of course, not everyone felt the same but sizes are still available for the Afro Hu NMD – the same can’t be said for any of the previous styles.

Just when you thought hype was dying for this collection, it seems Pharrell could be about to redeem himself. See for yourself as these are the first images of the Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD ‘Inspiration’ Pack.



Thankfully, Pharrell opts for a far more unassuming choice of colours on this upcoming pack. That said, colourful detailing is still piped across the ankle surround but just like the originals, this pack won’t feature that block text across the forefoot.

Chinese branding is another familiar style cue and thanks to that ‘Trail’ construct, you can be assured of the best in lock-down support.

According to sources, the Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD ‘Inspiration’ Pack is scheduled to launch this November in several styles. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. Is Pharrell back in the game?!
