Following on from its adidas Originals ZX 9000 collaboration that was released back in July, the U.K.-based sneaker store Offspring is back with yet another pair coming as part of its “London to LA Part 2” pack — introducing its take on the ZX 420.
While the former pair celebrated London in all its stark glory, Offspring has headed to L.A. for the inspiration of the ZX 420, dousing it in a myriad of panels that come already fitted out (and some that can be customized by you). Inspired by thrift and farmer’s markets that frequent the streets of L.A., elements such as “Lemon” and “Mint” corduroy mix with “Sunshine Orange” suede to create a summer-ready sneaker.
Alongside this are panels made from natural, undyed canvas, which have been left clean so you can get creative. With each purchase will come a cookbook featuring recipes from London and L.A., and within this are instructions on how to make natural dyes from food waste. With this dye, you can then use the supplied paintbrush to incorporate your own style into the shoes, which subsequently also references adidas Originals’ past with releases such as the “Oddity Pack” or adiColor.
As for details, you’ll find embossing on the heels that reference L.A. and the River Thames in London, tongue tags with adidas Trefoil branding, and printed insoles decorated with L.A. flea market graphics. Rounding out the pack is a natural canvas tote bag that has also been designed to be reworked by you using natural dyes.
The Offspring x adidas Originals ZX 420 “London to LA Part 2” will drop tomorrow, August 7, exclusively on Offspring’s website and in its stores.
