Gucci and adidas' ZX8000 Pack Gets a Release Date
While new Gazelles are already here.
Kicking off with the Gazelles, we find luxurious updates applied to the foolproof sneaker. For example, the colors of the Italian flag highlight a “GG” canvas-covered style, while another goes full Green Goblin with hits of green and purple decking out another logomanic style. A blue iteration follows, but not before the ZX8000 gets its time in the spotlight.
Here, we find the archive-derived runner doused in saturated hues, many of which are also taken from the past. It starts with a “Clear Aqua” makeover, utilizing the fan-favorite colorway and applying a dual-branded tongue tag alongside “GG” motifs that are embedded into the silky synthetic panels. The remakes continue with “Pink Statra,” which eschews the motif for dual-branding on the tongue and heel, while the “Beige Tone” style blends elements of subtlety with maximal branding for a classic Gucci impact.
Rounding out the drop is a trio of transparent geometric rubber adilette slides, evocative of jelly slides from the 1980s and ’90s. Take a look at the drop above, and head over to adidas to pick up pairs now, or wait for the full release of ZX8000s which arrives on April 7.
