The bright yellow 'Hu NMD' shoes feature an unusual lace-up system.

Designed by the famous singer, rapper and producer Pharrell Williams, these shoes were formulated with a new lacing system "for support and for freedom." Rather than weaving into holes and criss-crossing as most laces do, these laces come out of the side of the shoe where the mid-sole is. The words "human" and "race" are front and center in black on each of these shoes, standing out against the bold yellow backdrop. One of these shoes has the rainbow version of adidas' logo, while the other has Pharrell's signature.

The Hu NMD shoe collaboration has resulted in a the creation of a pair of sneakers that are unlike any other on the market.
