The adidas Hu NMD S1 RYAT, inspired by trails, has now been unveiled by the collaboration for 2022. The Hu NMD S1 RYAT balances contemporary beauty with the history of the landscape and the performance requirements it demands, uniting the past and the future.

In “Cardboard,” the fresh silhouette’s standard construction of durable materials makes a return. Leather supports the upper while a transparent TPU cage combines with TPU plugs to accent the look. Standard to the NMD line, a full-length boost midsole provides ample cushioning atop a rugged rubber outsole that carries a Trefoil-shaped grip.

Together, Pharrell Williams and adidas have a long history of making magic. The pair has remained a mainstay in streetwear, whether it was the original Hu NMD that shocked the world or the team-up Humanrace clothing collection. The RYAT is a cultural artefact and an object for people pushing forward on our planet, Williams said in reference to the design of the shoe.

The adidas Hu NMD S1 RYAT “Cardboard” will go on sale for $250 USD on September 2 at 10am EDT through adidas and a few select retailers worldwide. Before the sneaker is released later this week, have a peek at the advertising art above and a hands-on look below.
