In the anticipation of the upcoming Lunar New Year of the Pig, Pharell Williams is set to release two Chinese-New-Year inspired kicks with adidas. Sporting bold red themes, the Solar HU and the basketball-inspired Crazy BYW will arrive this weekend in “scarlet”. The Crazy BYW silhouette has a red and yellow scale-like pattern on the upper with the word ‘AMBITION’ embroidered in a similar fashion much like Williams’ HU NMD models. The ‘Scarlet’ Solar HU comes once again with the Continental Boost–this time there are black mesh side panels creating detailed depth to the model. The Chinese Character for good fortune is embroidered on the left shoe of this pair, with the typical ‘Hu’ on the right. Will copping either of these kicks bring you good fortune for the new year?
