Adidas x Pharrell 'Human Race' Football Kits Released - Arsenal, Bayern, Juventus, Manchester United & Real Madrid - To be Worn In-Match(!)

Adidas has just presented the outstanding Pharrell Williams "Humanrace" football shirts. The full kits are now available to buy, including shorts, socks and kids' versions.

Some of these kits will actually be worn in-match - more details on that at the bottom!

The accompanying boots, worn by Paul Pogba last weekend, have also been launched officially.

Each jersey is unified by the hand-painted aesthetic, which was central to the process led by Pharrell, with the iconic shirts redesigned in a traditional artistic format. Starting out on a simple cotton t-shirt, the reverse engineered design process was centred around a raw, human and expressive hand-drawn technique on a simple piece of canvas. All intricate details are reimagined in paint format, from club crest to partner logos, to create a look unified by style. From there, Pharrell worked collaboratively with the adidas design team to create elite performance jerseys, featuring the very best in adidas technology.

Adidas x Pharrell Williams Humanrace Football Kits

The Adidas Humanrace football shirts will be available for Arsenal, Bayern, Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid, with each one of them drawing inspiration from a specific iconic past design.


The Adidas Arsenal 2020 Pharell Williams Humanrace shirt is inspired by the iconic 'bruised banana' from the '91-93 seasons. It's foundly remembered not just for its unique design but also the fact that it was worn for a domestic cup double.

Bayern Munich

The Bayern design is based on the 1991-93 home shirt with its large block 3 Stripes on the shoulders.


Remembering the first season of the Adidas x Juventus partnership, the Juventus Humanrace shirt is based on the 2015-16 away, which was an instant classic.

Manchester United

The Adidas x Pharrell Manchester United Humanrace shirt is based on the 1990-92 away, which has been reimagined with a tie-dye effect to create a modern-day version of it.

Real Madrid

Completing the collection, the Real Madrid Humanrace football shirt is based on the classic 2014-15 Yamamoto Dragon kit.

Surprisingly, both Bayern Munich and Juventus will actually wear their kits in-match - this explains the use of their actual sponsors in the designs. Juventus will wear the kit against Verona on October 25 while Bayern will wear it in the next DFB Pokal match, which has not been drawn yet.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid will wear theirs for the pre-match warmup this weekend.
