Pharrell and Nigo

In a meeting of the minds, adidas Originals by Pharrell Williams’ Human Race™ and Nigo’s Human Made join forces to create a collection inspired by the heart — a catalyst for boundless creativity and imagination. The longtime friends show that “being connected heart-to-heart means you can work together to make anything.”

Pharrell and Nigo’s friendship and mutual admiration for one another serves as the foundation for their latest collaboration, showcased when the two came together in Nigo’s Human Made studio in Tokyo to introduce their pieces and share their thoughts on their joint creative process. The collection includes the Solar Hu and Hu NMD models, each featuring premium construction and embroidered details inspired by Nigo’s cult heritage streetwear label.

The running-inspired Solar Hu model assumes a more technical aesthetic, constructed from breathable mesh and textured Primeknit, placed on a Boost™ midsole and rubber outsole. TPU heel stabilizers and EVA rubber in the forefoot provide support, finished with the shoe’s distinctive lace eyelet panel and finished with an embroidered Human Made Heart logo on the toebox.

Next up, the Hu NMD model steps out in its classic form, featuring a full Primeknit construction with a soft TPU heel cage and lace system, placed on the signature NMD Boost™ midsole with EVA inserts and a rugged black outsole. The shoe’s pure white colorway is accented with red laces and an embroidered Human Made Heart logo on the toebox, completing the collection’s “spectacle of unbridled, super vivid instincts.”

The Human Race x Human Made collection is now available exclusively at adidas Originals Flagships,, and limited retailers. The Hu NMD will retail for PHP14,000 while the Solar Hu will retail for PHP8,300.
