No left and right shoe are alike.
Pharrell Designs Another Line of Adidas Superstars No left and right shoe are alike.

The sneaker world is divided over a braggy, swaggy styling trick.

That is, to team a left shoe of one color to a right shoe of a different color - it's a great way to show off the fact that you have multiples of one style.

"Sure, it's a huge sneakerhead no-no, but hypebeasts are probably just salty they couldn't do it first," said streetwear site Complex.

Meanwhile, Pharrell Williams just designed a new adidas Originals Superstar that aims to end this debate once and for all. Dubbed Supershell, this new collection is meant to be mismatched. Featuring the art of NYC contemporary artist Todd James, British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, American photographer-director Cass Bird and contemporary Japanese artist Mr. - joined by six of Pharrell’s very own artworks - each left shoe and right shoe of the Supershell Artwork collection exhibits a different graphic treatment, allowing the wearer countless opportunities to mix and match.

The shoes are offered in black and white and are completely interchangeable. Yay or nay?
