Pharrell’s New Shoes: Not Sure If Human Race Or Stan Smith

Pharrell’s Human Race NMD’s were without a doubt one of the best shoes of 2016. In typical Skateboard P fashion, they were unique, colorful, and turned heads wherever you went. They were very desirable … and very valuable, as most pairs still easily go for $500.

Now it’s 2017, and Pharrell’s back for another go-around with the Human Race, as evidenced by these leaked images courtesy of someone who refers to themselves as “spicy chicken wings”. Great name, right? Well, at least as long as they’re bone-in. The KicksOneTwo squad doesn’t really rock with boneless wings, unless we’re at Buffalo Wild Wings or a similar establishment where you really can’t taste the difference.

We’re sorry, we digress. We just love chicken wings … and we love these shoes too. They clearly take their inspiration from adidas’s timeless Stan Smith with the green hit on the heel (featuring Pharrell’s branding) and the lace loops, and feature a clean all white Primeknit upper.

The outsole features a unique traction pattern, and the insole is where Pharrell’s creativity shines through. Like previous collaborative adidas models, there’s a “diagram” of sorts of the human body, featuring everything from the thyroid to the pelvis.

There’s no official release date or any real info just yet (spicy chicken wings must really have the plug), but we’ll be sure to keep our ear to the streets … cause we’ll be needing a pair of these jawns when they drop.
