Are you a sneakerhead? No? How about a hypebeast? Still no, huh? Well, in that case, there's a strong possibility you have no idea that "Happy" singer and (weird) hat-lover, Pharrell Willams just dropped some very clean new Adidas sneakers. No worries, we'll fill you in on all the important details. Trust us, you're going to want to buy these. The best part? The price tag isn't too steep. Well, at least not Yeezy steep.
Released today, the collaborative Phrarrell x Adidas effort, dubbed the Hu Holi “Blank Canvas” collection is inspired by a spring festival in India called Holi. The core values of the Holi festival are equality, humanity and love. These sneakers, reading "WORLD" stitched across the front achieve just that. Ironically enough, however, the Holi festival is nicknamed,"the festival of color". Judging by the images below, these sneakers are hardly that.
Here's a look at the Pharrell x Adidas Hu Holi "Blank Canvas" sneakers, with images from Instagram.
We suspect that anyone who buys these kicks could either keep them fresh, clean, and white or embrace the spirit of Holi and allow them to be painted with colorful powders and dyes. In our personal opinion, we're intimated by all white sneakers — too much room for error. The dirtier, the better! Less stress.
There are three different "Blank Canvas" sneakers available at this time both online and in stores, the Tennis Hu PK Blank Canvas ($160), the Stan Smith Blank Canvas ($160), and the Hu NMD Blank Canvas ($250). Due to their popularity, the Hu NMD is likely to be sold out by end of day today. That said, you can shop Adidas for the other selections.
If you decide to shop the collection in stores, be courteous, please. There's already been several reports of physical fights breaking out in Singapore over these sneakers. If the irony of a shoe promoting "humanity" causing humans to fight hasn't hit you yet, you're a lost cause.
