Editor’s Notes: After product shots of a third Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals NMD Hu “N*E*R*D* surfaced online in late July, we now get an on-foot look at the sneaker thanks to @yankeekicks on Instagram.

This iteration features an off-white Primeknit upper with grey outsoles. N*E*R*D* branding is seen on the heel and top of the right shoe. The left shoe features traditional Mandarin characters.

Previous N*E*R*D* NMD Hu sneakers include the black/silver pair released at ComplexCon 2017 and the colorful “Homecoming” version that released in Virginia in June.

No concrete release information exists for this pair so stay tuned for any updates.
