Editor’s Notes: adidas has confirmed that the next Pharrell Williams sneaker collaboration to hit shelves will be the musician slash designer’s take on the Crazy BYW, dubbed PW BYW LVL X. It will arrive in two distinct colorways.

The highlight of the design is the embroidered ‘Ambition’ on the vamp of each shoe in bold white letters, contrasting nicely with the pink and black colorways.

“The best things in life take time and are rarely perfect first time round. There is something beautiful about that process, from the intangible to the tangible. I continue my basketball journey with adidas. The next step. The X phase,” said Pharrell.

Pharrell himself teased this specific colorway back in April via his Instagram page. The singer was seen donning the multi-patterned iteration that is now officially releasing to the public. Peep the post below to check out how he styled it.

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