Thus far, one of the central themes in Pharrell's partnership with adidas has been vibrant color. It began with the Supercolor Superstars and continues with his latest sneaker, the "Human Race" adidas NMD. However, toning down the hues a bit from time to time has its benefits, as seen with this upcoming release.

One of Pharrell's next "Human Race" NMDs is going black, with the lone hit of color on the upper being on the heel logo. Not exactly "Pitch Black," the shoe rides atop a white Boost cushioned sole.

Enjoy a few more angles below as we wait on a confirmed sneaker release date from adidas.
