adidas ZX 8000 25TH ANNIVERSARY   


MADE ON: 06/13



Chances are that if you’re serious about your kicks, you have heard of the ZX series. Known as the pioneers of athletic runner’s shoes, the ZX family has kept the TORSION® technology and the clean design that set a world record in the year it was released, at 1989 Rotterdam Marathon. The 25th anniversary pack is a celebration of the classics as much as it is about the future of the ZX series. The 3-stripes and suede overlays, inspired by the adidas archive are combined with stark primary colours to give it some 90’s flair. The ZX 8000 was designed to focus on cushioning specifically. The anniversary edition maintains that tradition with its stern heel, contrasted by playful materials like shiny plastic and sleek suede. The flash style, history and technology of the shoe appeal to a modern crowd, trendsetters and athletes alike.
