First Look: Humanrace x adidas Samba

More Pharrell x adidas Originals.


[Update 27 Nov] Campaign images for the Humanrace x adidas Samba by Pharrell are here, along with an early access date of 26 November for Humanrace subscribers. The limited capsule collection also includes knit jerseys, tracksuits, and shorts with design details that borrow heavily from football uniforms. Browse through the collection via the images above.

[Update 16 Nov] Heads up as official images have arrived for the Humanrace x adidas Samba in not one, but two colorways. Aside from the white pair that Pharrell was seen wearing, a black colorway has also been revealed with both pairs sporting an elongated shoe tongue, differentiating from the traditional Samba models. While no release dates are confirmed yet, do expect these to arrive in the coming weeks via adidas and selected retailers.

LINEIt’s been a jam-packed week for Pharrell Williams. In between appearing on the Rolling Stone cover with BTS’ RM and unveiling a new colorway of the Pharrell x adidas NMD Hu “Animal Print”, the pop polymath also found time to host the inaugural Mighty Dream Forum, a thought leadership forum focused on the exchange of ideas to create positive economic outcomes.

On day two of the three-day forum at Norfolk, Virginia, Pharrell announced the return of “Something in the Water Festival 2023”, but something else also caught the eyes of many in attendance. On the feet of the multi-hyphenate is a pair of never-before-seen Humanrace x adidas Samba.

The unreleased pair features the standard adidas Samba silhouette constructed in premium leather. It dons a beige-and-black color combo, complete with a gum outsole traditionally seen on the Samba. On the upper, the adidas Three Stripes sport its trademark zig-zag stitching, while Humanrace branding is printed in gold foil alongside the Three Stripes.

No release details are available for this pair of Humanrace x adidas Samba, so here’s a sneak peek at the shoe via the image gallery above. Keep your eyes peeled as we continue bring you more latest updates.
