ZX sneakers often provide an intricate mix of overlaid panels, and this stylishly stacked build serves as a perfect canvas for atmos’s animal print experimentations. Here, the uppers are dressed in cow, leopard, cheetah and giraffe patterns, all of which are brought together by vivid tiger details on and around the eyestays. Stark white snakeskin pieces arrive towards the forefoot and midfoot for a touch of reptilian flair.
Moving to the lower half, a basketball-style midsole features a semi-translucent smoky grey shell that encases a full-foot BOOST cushioning setup. This BOOST boasts a zebra print to expand the shoe’s animal kingdom assemblage even further, while traditional white and gum outsoles complete the look.
The atmos x adidas ZX Alkyne “Crazy Animal” is limited to a scant 100 pairs, and will release exclusively via online raffle and at atmos Tokyo come July 25. The MSRP is set at ¥16,000 JPY (approximately $150 USD).
