The official Pharrell Williams X Adidas collaboration has been revealed and is now available in the Middle East. When it comes to sneakers, there are certain styles that become seriously iconic. From their silhouette to color and even creator, they have people lining up around the block with every new drop. Starting with the Adidas Stan Smith. The icon of modern-day style was launched on the tennis courts back in 1971 and hailed by the legendary former number one Stanley Roger Smith. The style again hit the limelight with its relaunch in 2014.

Meet the Tennis Hu

Based on musician and designer Pharrell Williams‘ vision of bringing everyone together, Hu is taken from the first syllable of “Human.”

Fall 2017 sees these designs brought together: cue Pharrell Williams X Adidas. Inspired by one another, Williams looked to aspects of the Stan Smith to create the Tennis Hu. His first signature model, the shape redefines the concept of a court shoe by drawing on aspects of one built for running and taking design codes from the Stan Smith. Through a sock-like composition, the lightweight mesh offers a breathable upper, making it perfect for hot and cold environments alike.
