As its name suggests, the latest version of the shoe, the 10,000 JC, puts Jacques Chassaing’s personal role front and centre – most explicitly by adding his initials to the branding on the tongue. The dark navy uppers are crafted from a premium blend of suede leather and other natural/technical fabrications that reflect the understated colours and textures Jacqus Chassaing often wears. The toned-down aesthetic also allows ahead-of-their-time technologies to take centre-stage. Mesh underlays are complimented by a webbed, Torsion-branded panel across the ever-iconic three stripes. A TPU support on the heel draws attention thanks to a flash of aqua blue – a colour synonymous with the ZX series, and one that also appears to most eye-catching effect across the entirety of the 10,000 JC’s midsole.
