SNEAKER THURSDAY: PHARRELL'S LATEST HU - THE SOLARHU

7:55 AM No matter what Pharrell created with adidas so far, it has been a big hit. Every collection is so special and so different, and as a result it's always sold out pretty fast.  As soon as there is an announcement of a new collection, I get super hyped and excited.
