Constructed with an orange engineered adidas Primeknit textile upper, and matched with a tonal monochromatic BOOST midsole and rubber outsole, this striking execution features a contrasting stitched graphic which reads ‘Human Race’ in Xhosa. Completing the look, the PW HU NMD sneaker comes with co-branded sock liners and additional lace options.
