Earlier this year, adidas dropped a summer pack of reissued and ‘remastered’ ZX models: the ZX 5000, ZX 6000, ZX 7000 and ZX 9000. With this latest release, another equally iconic iteration of the series, the ZX 8000, is now available again – faithfully reproduced to meet the qualities that first made it so sought-after by runners and streetwear aficionados alike.First appearing in 1989 the ZX 8000 was a high-quality shoe that runners favoured for training and competition alike thanks to its versatile characteristics: it’s lightweight feel was backed up by a padded tongue and reinforcements to critical strike zones, while reflective patches ensured it was just as eye-catching during night runs as it was in the day. The FW19 version has been crafted to look like an aged original from that time. The same aquarium-like tones of the original however colours are meant to look sun faded from the OG aqua colours. Shades of aqua blue are punctuated by bright stabs of yellow and a refined dash of purple. The key, contemporary updates come in the form of a new lace jewel and insole, both of which feature special ’30 years of Torsion’ branding. A reminder that beyond the shoe’s more visually striking features, there lies a technology that has been elevating adidas shoes for three decades.
