Pharrell is back with more Sambas! Much like the tonal color scheme of his prior drops which drew inspiration from his 2015 “Supercolor” Collection, this new three-colorway pack comes in wearable shades of Charcoal, White and Terracotta.
This tonal approach emphasizes the construction and paneling of the Samba. Even from afar, you can see the distinct paneling on the upper, the details on the outsole and textures on the extended foldover tongue. Besides the colors scheme, the new Sambas feature the same luxe construction that stays true to the pillars of Pharrell’s partnership with Adidas: craft, quality and heritage. As such, you can expect luxurious leather laces, impeccable construction and eco-conscious yet buttery smooth ECCO leather on the upper.
The three new colorways were first unveiled at Paris Fashion Week 2023, where Pharrell hosted his first runway as the Creative Director for Menswear at Louis Vuitton. The pack was presented within a special “Samba Café” pop-up inspired by the culture of Paris, which has been a source of inspiration for Pharrell. The three-day pop-up offered a limited number of the Humanrace Samba each day. Visitors could also enjoy a curated menu of items, exclusive packaging, high-quality coffee on top of the first-come-first-serve access to the sneakers.
The Humanrace x Adidas Samba in White, Charcoal and Terracotta will drop in Singapore August 12 and will retail for around S$279. Check in for more updates on its wider release.
