adidas Originals‘ “A-ZX” series has delivered many a bold sneaker, from the Hey Tea ZX 7000 to LEGO’s ZX 8000, and now the Three Striped brand has tapped the University of Miami for “U,” reworking the ZX 5000.

The adidas Originals ZX 5000 was originally debuted in 1989 as a sneaker for serious runners and casuals alike, coming equipped with a Kevlar torsion system and a large external heel cage that set the shoe apart from other ZX models that released in ‘89 — such as the 4000, 6000, 8000 and 9000.

This collaboration serves as a homage to the ZX 5000, the Miami Hurricanes, and the University of Miami’s heritage, delivering elements that have been reworked using the esteemed institution’s sporting colorway. For example, the electroplated TPU heel counter appears in orange and green — split down the middle at the rear — while the Three Stripe branding appears in white with shadowing reminiscent of that found on the OG ZX 5000.

Elsewhere, white patent leather and ballistic nylon have been used to construct the upper, while co-branded lace jewels, sock liners, and tongue tabs have been added to round out the collaborative pair. Lastly, a contrasting gold-chrome electroplated Torsion bar appears embedded into the outsole.

The University of Miami’s adidas Originals ZX 5000 releases globally on November 6 at select retailers such as Overkill, as well as on the adidas website, and will cost $140 USD. Take a closer look at the limited-edition pair above.
