First Look: Pharrell x adidas Crazy BYW “Ambition”

As a black man, my ambitions come in many different colors.

A post shared by Pharrell Williams (@pharrell) on

Pharrell Williams, seemingly without even trying, lit the sneaker community ablaze this weekend with the unveiling of yet another adidas Crazy BYW collaboration. Rumored earlier this year, in March, this “Solar Pink” edition of Pharrell’s ongoing three stripes partnership features the word “Ambition” written across both shoes in white overtop black and pink Primeknit construction. The shoe's yellow counterpart, that released back in February for All-Star Weekend, was an instant smash. Pairs now go for more than triple retail value on the secondary market. When this Pharrell x adidas Crazy BYW “Ambition” releases sometime soon, it’ll likely follow suit. Stay tuned for more.
