A Third Pharrell x adidas NMD Hu “NERD” Colorway is Releasing

In a very short span, Pharrell Williams’ NMD Hu has become one of the most celebrated silhouettes in sneakers. Further, those that bear the name of his band, N.E.R.D., are even more successful.

First released during the second annual ComplexCon, in 2017, that black pair was followed by a whimsical “Homecoming” edition this June in conjunction with the Z104 Shaggfest festival in Virginia Beach.

The third Pharrell x adidas NMD Hu “NERD” is a simple cream pair with white NERD branding and contrasting pink laces. Full-length Boost cushioning comes customary while the band’s brain logo marks the heel counter.

Release details for the shoe have not been detailed. Previous pairs have been priced at $ 250 USD.

Pusha T Says Drake’s Upcoming adidas Line is Named After His Son

If you have the Internet or a Soundcloud account, then you’re well aware there’s a pretty vicious rap battle going on at the moment. Pusha T and Drake are sparring at a high level and both fighting dirty. The latest blow comes in the form of “The Story Of Adidon” which alludes to Drizzy having a son that’s both secret and neglected. This allegation came as a surprise and caused some confusion with the following lyric linking the child to Drake’s adidas deal:

Adonis is your son
And he deserves more than an Adidas press run

This morning, Push — also under the adidas roster unless a recent change was made — called into The Breakfast Club to discuss both the beef and the lyric in question.

“Who rolls out their child with a sweatsuit?” questioned Pusha. “See the adidas situation is this: the child, allegedly his new line on adidas is called ADIDON which is named after Adonis his son. We couldn’t know about your child until you start selling sweatsuits and sneakers?”

Hear what Push had to say in the call to The Breakfast Club below.

Kanye West Reveals New adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 for Fall/Winter

The adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 is apparently the next big push from Kanye West and his growing YEEZY company. To no surprise, the man behind his nicknamesake brand already has a pair in a colorway we’ve never seen.

Approved for Q4 — Holiday Season or Fall/Winter depending on the drop date — as said by West, this grey and gum makeup sees the updated chunky runner remaining muted and tonal. This is in line with other 700 V2s we’ve seen on or from Kanye, appearing in White/Grey and Black/Grey thus far.

Sporting the same sole tooling as its predecessor with a slightly less aggressive upper, preview the self explantatory style below and expect these to hit shelves near the end of the year.

Kanye West Reveals Original adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Sample

Recent as they may be, 2015’s adidas Yeezy Boost 350 “Turtle Dove” serves as a classic to some. An event by most measures, the quite and comfy kicks caused quite a stir with many mimics to come.

Not a mimic but rather the origin, Kanye West took to Twitter to reveal an original sample of said shoe in on-foot fashion.

To even the obsessed eye, differences are slim. The shaping on the sample proves slightly higher yet chunkier, while black collar trim and a more pronounced print/lighter base tone are apparent. In addition, the laces also sport reverse contrast with black playing the base and grey serving as the subtle contrast.

Kanye West Previews adidas Yeezy 700 V2

Kanye West took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to preview the upcoming adidas Yeezy 700 V2. The second edition of the largely popular Yeezy 700, and a shoe West says he “loves.”

Although certainly of a similar volition as the model’s aforementioned predecessor, the V2 edition also undeniably stands on its own. True to the retro aesthetics currently trending in the sneaker industry, breathable construction adorns much of the body while reflective details aids that design language while equally heightening visibility.

West appears to have much in store with adidas for the remainder of 2018, some of which he shared on Twitter in weeks past. The social media platform, though, has been problematic for West. Many of his thoughts and stream of consciousness state there have proven ill-advised. Yet adidas has affirmed that they have no plans of parting ways with West.
