The adidas Originals ZX 500 and the ZX 700 will make there grand entrance into the ZX line this season. The ZX 500 in cyan blue/flamingo and the ZX 700 in black/yellow/gray both pull from the running silhouette from the 1980s and are sure to breathe life into the classic aesthetic.
Originally released in 1984 as a running shoe, the ZX 500 sports a brilliant blue suede and nylon mesh upper with pops of flamingo on the heel stability counter and the traditional ghilly lacing system. The colourful upper is tastefully contrasted with white and light grey on the midsole and a light grey heel tab that showcases the Trefoil while the 3-Stripes are foxed and finished with a thin flamingo piping.
The ZX 700, originally released in 1985 as a runner, sports a predominantly black suede upper with the use of a matching black mesh on the toe box and behind the 3-Stripes for maximum breathability. The ghilly system and heel stability counter use a complementary grey while the upper is set off with flashes of a bright yellow on the 3-Stripes, Trefoil tongue tag, heel tab and the reflective section of the toe box. The white midsole with sections of grey around the heel serves to keep everything in balance and finishes off the design. Look for the collection to hit select retailers in the near future.
