adidas Originals is known to partner up with many a different brand or designer every year for collaborative footwear pieces, and one of its most consistent imprints is atmos. This season, the Japanese streetwear stalwart has been tapped to create a bold adidas ZX8000 G-SNK “TJ” collaboration which is inspired by a sample from 2012 that never made it through to mass production.

The “TJ” moniker refers to Till Jagla who, until recently, worked a sizable tenure as the Three Stripes head of energy at the brand’s HQ, as he pulled this out of the archives and made a push to see its public launch. A lighter gray hue dominates the sneakers as it cascades over the pleated quarters, toe boxes, tongues and forefoot overlays, the latter of which is styled with reflective paneling and bears snakeskin patterns. “Cyan” is used as the secondary color as it accents through the interior liners, tongue branding, midsoles and heels, while pink hits complement on the Trefoil branding, stripes and heightened heel overlays. The Torsion cushioning is marked by the lace dubraes which arrives with a bright yellow backdrop.

These will be dropping via atmos on May 14 for ¥16,000 (approx. $123 USD).
