The Adidas x Pharrell Samba Humanrace sneakers leave netizens unimpressed with their lack of colors

The Adidas x Pharrell Samba Humanrace sneakers pay homage to the original Samba from 1949. These sneakers feature Adidas' signature three-stripe branding, decorated with zig-zag stitching.

The classic T-toe design is rendered in leather, and the midsole is housed in rubber, providing extra grip and traction. A massive tongue adds to the unique design, accompanied by genuine rawhide laces left unfinished for a sartorial touch.

The information about the sneakers on the official website of Humanrace is as follows:

"Pharrell and Adidas Originals introduce an elevated reconstruction of the Samba as a celebration of the rich history of adidas football. Made with premium leather and suede in a Cloud White and Night Grey colorway."

While some fans have praised the Adidas x Pharrell Samba Humanrace sneakers for the elegance of the solid colors, most found them too pricey and even called them “horrible."
