adidas and Pharrell Williams continue their partnership with a Crazy BYW and an Originals Solar SU Glide M to celebrate Chinese New Year. The collaborative duo has been known to honor traditions from many cultures, and the influence of Chinese culture is boldly displayed on this Crazy BYW, as red and gold appear in a dragon scale pattern across the Primeknit upper with “AMBITION” stitched in white down the center of the sneaker. The Originals Solar HU Glide M takes a more subdued colorblock approach with red and black panels and hits of gold on the heel tab, liner, tongue logo, and beneath the lace panels with “Hu” embroidered onto the toe box.
