adidas A-ZX Series: ZX 8500 x Overkill

adidas Originals and the iconic Berlin retailer, Overkill, link up once again for the latest installment of the landmark A-ZX series. Having first been founded in 1992 as a graffiti magazine, in nearly two decades of existence Overkill has grown into one of the world’s most celebrated sneaker stores. Originally named after the moment when a spray-can explodes into an unpredictable splatter of colour, today, Overkill celebrates its roots by re imagining adidas’ archival ZX franchise in the form of the ZX 8500 OVERKILL.
So what does it look like? Crafted as an ode to graffiti culture, the ZX 8500 OVERKILL sneaker brings together a number of features from various ZX ‘000 series silhouettes. Taking the iconic ZX 8000 silhouette as its base, the vibrant neon yellow, pink, and purple upper is enhanced with the addition of lace ghillies from the ZX 5000 and overlays from the ZX 9000. Bringing graffiti culture influences to the fore, the sneaker then features concrete look toe overlays matched with Overkill embroidery, as well as ‘OK’ tags on both tongues and spray can warning symbols on the heel caps. Finally, rounding out the look is a removable shoe cover that boasts an Overkill ‘OK’ tag printed on its exterior and has been designed to protect the sneaker while the wearer is spray painting.
