Japanese imprint atmos Tokyo and adidas Originals continue to expand their partnership with a special seasonal collaboration titled the “Setsubun” pack.

Setsubun, which literally means “seasonal division,” is the beginning of spring in the old Japanese calendar. As such, festivities roll out across Japan where rituals and traditions take place, cleansing any bad spirits or fortunes for the year to come.

With this in mind, atmos Tokyo and adidas Originals deliver a ZX 8000 and ZX 2K BOOST, as well as two long-sleeve T-shirts co-designed by the animation artist TAROU2 who depicts the shoes alongside an accompanying anime-styled girl. For the shoes, atmos Tokyo has left no detail unturned, going all-out with the fabrics and construction of both pairs.

atmos Tokyo’s ZX 8000 “Setsubun” features a red, green, and blue woven base that’s designed to replicate three different colored demons. The demon motif is continued onto smaller aspects such as the tongue, where you’ll find the mythical creature embroidered into the tag on the exterior side along with its respective fortune on the interior side of the tag.

Complementing this woven base is an overlaying medley of red suede on the toe and mudguard, blue suede for the eyestay placket, more red suede around the heel section, and reflective cream leather on the mid’s lower section. Contrasting all of this is a furry tiger printed lining that’s said to represent the pants that are worn by the demons, as well as a white plastic heel cage that’s synonymous of the ZX design.

For the ZX 2K BOOST, atmos Tokyo opts for a much more laidback aesthetic. Soft black suede making up nearly three-quarters of the sneaker is contrasted by the blue, green, and red woven heel section and tongue, while more tiger printed fur can be seen lining the heel’s upper area. Black fur decorates the very top of the tongue, while black leather has been used to make the Three Stripe side panel detailing stand out. Rounding out its design is the gold hoop on the heel that replicates the one that’s worn by the demon in its ear, and its BOOST-equipped sole unit that’s finished with red details.

The atmos Tokyo x adidas Originals “Setsubun” pack is available via a raffle on atmos Tokyo’s website, ending on February 1. More details about the raffle and the aforementioned T-shirts can be found on atmos Tokyo’s website, where the ZX 8000 will retail for ¥15,950 JPY and the ZX 2K BOOST will cost ¥20,350 (approx. $153 USD/$195 USD respectively). The shoes will also be dropping on adidas’ regional Japanese website on February 2.
