Speculation on release date, price and where to buy


adidas Originals took for instagram to unveil the new Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD “Animal Print Blue” ahead of their upcoming release.

Although Ye’s Yeezys have been in the headlines lately, especially after all the excitement of Yeezy Day 2022, it seems the spotlight has shifted a bit towards Ye’s musical peer Pharrell Williams and the reinvention in progress of its Hu NMD line.

For example, we have seen the NMD “Animal Print Orange” arrived not too long ago, a relative of the upcoming blue colourway, which marked the first time the cheetah-like motif appeared on a pair of Pharrell’s Hu trainers.

With the first orange design being completely unique to anything we’ve seen before, the upcoming “Animal Print Blue” colorway is having a bit of a hard time keeping up. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like adidas and Pharrell have knocked it out of the park yet again with their upcoming Hu release.

With that in mind, here’s everything we know about their upcoming debut so far…

Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD Animal Print Blue Release Date Speculation

adidas Instagram post confirms that Pharrell “Animal Print Blue” NMDs will be released on August 13, 2022.

That means there’s not long to wait if you want to pick up a pair, putting them in line to be considered among the best sneakers to rock this summer when they arrive.

The adidas App CONFIRMED is currently running a raffle for a chance to purchase the sneakers right now, so we recommend heading over there to register your interest.

Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD Animal Print Design Blue

Multi-hyphenate Pharrell Williams has never been one to hold back with his Hu NMD designs, so it’s perhaps no surprise to see these “Animal Print Blue” sneakers with a familiar cheetah motif and bold on the upper.

Specifically, you’ll find the uppers dressed in irregular Yellow and Black embroidered patches, which are then contrasted by the Blue Primeknit base layer.

This blue tone then continues onto the Boost midsole units, while the inner lining arrives in Black and Gray to match the outsoles.

The TPU cages then introduce a third orange tone to the already loaded color scheme. The shoes also come with alternative orange laces if you’re looking to add a bit more symmetry to your trainers.

Indeed, the “Animal Print Blue” NMDs arrive with lime green laces as standard, adding yet another color to complete this very unique Hu NMD design.

Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD Animal Print Blue Price

The new NMD “Animal Print Blue” Hu are currently listed on the adidas App CONFIRMED for £180.

It’s about the same price as the Orange “Animal print” colorway that debuted earlier this year, continuing the recent trends of Pharrell Williams’ Hu sneakers.

Where To Buy The Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD Animal Print Blue

As mentioned, Hu “Animal Print Blue” NMDs are currently listed on the adidas App CONFIRMED for now, though, you’ll have to wait until August 13 to pick up a pair. Be sure to enter adidas’ online raffle if you want to make the purchase.

If you miss a chance to secure your pair through retail, we suggest checking out the resale market at StockX as an alternative place of purchase.
