Original Story (07/15/21): N*E*R*D, the musical trio consisting of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shae Haley, will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album In Search Of… with the release of a special edition NMD HU. This is the sixth installment in the NERD x adidas NMD Hu saga, which kicked off with the all-black colorway in 2017.

This NMD HU features a Chalk White Primeknit upper with “N*E*R*D” embroidery on the right shoe and Chinese characters on the left shoe. Pastel hues of orange, blue, and green are found of the heel panels, outsoles, and sockliners and are mismatched between the two shoes. While all previous releases of the NERD NMD HU were all done on trail versions of the model, this one features the smooth outsole of the standard NMD.

This NERD x adidas NMD HU is expected to release this summer, likely around the album’s 20th anniversary on August 6th. Expect a release via adidas.com and the Confirmed app. Check out official images below.
