Pharrell and adidas Announce Their Second Hu NMD S1 RYAT Collab

The creative polymath and sportswear giant have reconnected to supply their second edition of the Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD S1 RYAT “Black” sneaker, following their recent collaboration for the sneaker.


The previous “Black” colorway was a stylish rendition of the classic hiking boot, and this new “White” edition is inspired by the same sources, but this time, the boot is designed for the summer season.

The Pharrell Williams and adidas NMD S1 RYAT was designed in the early stages of production to help wearers adjust to new ways of life while also reflecting on the complexities of everyday life. This new version of the style, on the other hand, is made of durable materials, with every element and detail serving a purpose.

The primarily white colorway was introduced to imagine future utopias, which would be realized through a combination of urban exploration and a love of the outdoors.


A TPU mudguard and toe cap have been added to the shoe’s upper, which is made up of a mix of premium suede and leather overlays for a fresh sense of utility. The newly-released design also includes a BOOST midsole, which provides a cloud-like underfoot cushioning effect, as well as a Trefoil-shaped grip on the outsole, proving that opposites do attract.

These will be available on and select retailers starting this Saturday, April 23.
