Pharrell Williams has teamed up adidas Originals to remix the Superstar and create a new sneaker they've dubbed the Supershell. It comes in classic black and white with splashes of artwork on the shell toe.

Pharrell has also handpicked a selection of artists to add their own personal spin: NYC artist Todd James, Japanese artist Mr., US photographer Cass Bird and British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid.

As Pharrell explains, "Certain people who usher in the differences and changes are the people who I consider to be icons. I appreciate adidas for having the willingness to open their doors, to have their garments and footwear become a canvas to all these creative minds. I feel like they exemplify that in everything they do, they are all curious people. I'm happy to host as a gallerist to all the artists who contributed to the exhibition called the Supershell".

Pick up a pair from 7 August with the release worldwide at adidas Originals stores or online.
