Originally deemed the “Afro Pack” given the hues and patterns that trace back to origins of Afrocentricity, Pharrell Williams’ widely anticipated pack is vindicated today with official images and a new moniker.
Arguably one of the most expressive NMD Hus to date, the newly dubbed “Solar Pack” affectionately utilizes both letters and numbers to convey a message of empowerment and perseverance. Translating Swahili, a tongue commonly spoken throughout Africa, “M1L3L3” translates to “forever” while more literal representation is seen through the “3MPOW3R” or “EMPOWER” text.
Varying patterns also shape the Boost cushioned sneaker. A white base is surrounded by a rainbow-like assortment of hues that help drive the uplifting message home. Take a closer look at the Pharrell x adidas NMD Hu “Solar Pack” below and expect the release on August 18 at select adidas retailers.
