For those of you expecting something wild from Pharrell on his first adidas collaboration, you may want to hunt down a pair of his first edition Ice Creams instead (which, interestingly, have a very Stan Smith-inspired silhouette). This first launch features no loud colors, no bold prints, and not even any Bionic Yarn. It does however feature three tonal colorways of the Stan Smith, along with three matching track jackets. Packer Shoes has just shared images, pricing and release information for the full collection. It launches this Saturday at 12am, midnight, at PackerShoes.com, as well as in-store at 12pm, noon. The shoes will set you back a relatively reasonable $150, while the track jackets - which have been done in full leather - will run $1,000.
What are your thoughts on the first collection from the Pharrell Williams x adidas Consortuim collaboration? Was it what you expected? Will you be picking up a pair, or a jacket?
