Pharrell Williams and adidas officially introduce the Hu NMD S1 RYAT, an outdoor-inspired boot building off of the design language of the original NMD S1.

Design of the NMD S1 RYAT commenced during a time when people were discovering and adjusting to new ways of living. The utilitarian and futuristic design is reflective of the complexities of ever-shifting present-day reality. “The RYAT is a cultural artifact and an object for humans pushing forward on our planet,” says Pharrell.

The NMD S1 RYAT was designed to be functional and is crafted from durable materials, with a rubberized TPU mudguard protecting the upper from the elements. The tooling is comprised of a large BOOST-encapsulating midsole for ultimate underfoot cushioning and a rugged outsole with Trefoil-shaped grip.

To celebrate the release, Humanrace and adidas enlisted renowned illustrator Moya Garrison-Msingwana (aka GANGBOX) to interpret the shoe in his signature maximalist style. GANGBOX has depicted a character wearing the RYATs and tons of hiking gear, well-equipped for any situation.

The Pharrell x adidas Hu NMD S1 RYAT launches in a white colorway on April 23rd on and at select retailers. This release will be followed by a black colorway later this year. Check out the GANGBOX illustrations and detailed shots of the NMD S1 RYAT below.
