Musician offers 50 shades of footwear as he continues his partnership with the brand

Adidas has debuted an ad for the brand's Superstar shoe line with prolific artist Pharrell Williams.

In the 30-second TV spot created by Johannes Leonardo, the musician, producer and fashion designer advises others to follow their own paths instead of his footsteps.

The Superstar line offers consumers 50 colors from which to choose. The monochrome ad shows only the sneakers in the saturated colors available.

The TV spot continues the apparel brand's work with the artist announced in 2014.
