adidas Originals and Pharrell’s N.E.R.D. collective are releasing a collaboration of the adidas NMD Hu exclusively at Complex Con this coming weekend. Featuring “YOU NERD” emblazoned on the shoes in N.E.R.D.’s classic typeface, this black/sneaker pays tribute to the funk/rap/pop band of the early 2000s. N.E.R.D. was formed by Pharrell, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley, and after being fairly inactive for most of the decade, the band released a single on November 1st, 2017.
adidas Originals also confirms the release of the N.E.R.D. training collection, which includes hoodies, t-shirts, and other workout gear that is meant to cross over into sports fashion. For now, these NERD NMD shoes are set to drop exclusively at Complex Con.
