The Adidas NMD R1 PK Yellow Drops On January 14

Just like the first Pharrell Hu NMD from 2016, this 2021 rendition comes with a full Primeknit yellow upper paired with round yellow laces. It also comes with a white Boost midsole, black plugs and a white outsole.

The difference lies in the absence of Pharrell’s signature insole, midfoot cage and heel branding. Also, the embroidered text on the midfoot of the sneaker comes in yellow threading rather than black, as seen on the 2016 edition.

A reminder that earlier Hu NMD were and remain highly coveted: Though Pharrell’s latest creations aren’t as hyped and the NMD has become a general release, earlier Hu NMD silhouettes can fetch over S$2,000 a pair on the resell market.

Final note: This sneaker is perfect for fans of Pharrell who could not score a pair of his super limited 2016 release. If you’ve always wanted them but don’t want to fork out US$1,987 (approx. S$2,806) to buy them off Stockx, this is your chance to own the look.
