The ZX – a sneaker initially designed as a performance shoe – celebrated its thirtieth birthday last year and remains one of adidas’ most recognizable silhouettes to date.
Crafted using fused mesh taped with seam-style detailing on the toebox, the ZX plastic overlays appear on the forefoot, around the eyestays and on the heel clip. Its digitally printed 4D midsole has been made using light, oxygen and liquid resin and has resulted in the archetypal look we’ve come to expect from a 4D shoe, with an extra energy return guaranteed.
Releasing alongside the “Dash Green”, “Heatmap” and “Core Black” colorways, this blacked-out iteration drops on July 31 retailing at £169.95 (approximately $215 USD) on the adidas webstore.
