For their ZX 9000, Concepts and adidas Originals drew influence from the mylar recovery blankets used to keep runners warm after they complete the famously challenging Boston marathon. As a result, the sneaker’s entire upper sports a highly-reflective metallic silver leather makeover, which is offset by a tricolored selection of stripes on the mid-panel.
Additional components include translucent TPU overlays on the upper, a navy blue heel cage and a matching eye stay, as well as speckled laces that are finished with “A-ZX Series” and “Concepts” branding. Elsewhere, the duo’s ZX 9000 presents a white Torsion-equipped sole unit complete with a tri-color effect, dual-branded tongue tags, and a touch of light gray suede on the vamp and toe.
Rounding out the occasion is a special-edition white box, which links back to adidas Originals’ A-ZX Series. The Concepts x adidas Originals ZX 9000 is set to release on September 6 at Concepts stores and on its website, and will later release on September 12 via adidas’ website and stores. Pricing is set at $140 USD.
