adidas Originals presents two new styles of the ZX range for this season. Coming into the fold is the ZX 500 in Cyan Blue/Flamingo and the ZX 700 in Black/Yellow/Gray. Both styles re-live adidas’ classic range of running profiles from the mid 1980s with a simple and sleek approach. Look for the collection to hit select retailers in the near future.

ZX 500 – Cyan Blue/Flamingo

Originally designed as a high mileage training shoe, the Zx 500 released in 1984 and featured a combination of Nylon mesh with suede reinforcements, serving to minimize the weight and maximize the breathability of the shoe. The streamlined silhouette and clean lines of the ZX 500 means that it has remained a favourite amongst sneaker aficionados since it first dropped and striking makeups of the shoe still regularly appear more than 25 years after it appeared. This version is no exception and features a head turning, brilliant blue suede and Nylon mesh upper with pops of flamingo on the heel stability counter and the traditional ghilly lacing system. The colourful upper is tastefully contrasted with white and light grey on the midsole and a light grey heel tab that showcases the Trefoil while the 3-Stripes are foxed and finished with a thin flamingo piping.

ZX 700 – Black/Yellow/Grey

The ZX 700 first made an appearance in 1985 as a high mileage runner but quickly made an equally considerable impact in the style stakes.
Arguably one of the less technical silhouettes in the ZX family, this version takes takes the simpler silhouette and drops a striking colourway that takes this into the realms of must have acquisitions. The upper is a predominantly black suede with the use of a matching black mesh on the toe box and behind the 3-Stripes for maximum breathability. The ghilly system and heel stability counter are also in a complementary grey while the whole upper is set off with pops of a bright yellow on the 3-Stripes, Trefoil tongue tag, heel tab and the reflective section of the toe box. The white midsole with sections of grey around the heel serves to keep everything in balance and finishes the shoe off perfectly.
