For Jordanheads, Nike SB fiends, Vans fanatics and other brand loyalists, you might glance at this latest drop from adidas Originals and feel like you’ve just seen these. But that just means you’re a regular Sneaker News reader who saw our profile of the MEGA Torsion RV whose colorway was inspired by one of the OG ZX 8000 colorways. And now less than six months later, there’s a new release that’s even closer to the original, but still offers a twist of its own. The adidas for atmos ZX 8000 G-SNK takes the late ’80s ‘Aqua’ look and applies a scaley texture to the overlay sections. And as detail-oriented readers will already know from the ‘G-SNK’ designator, this was done to keep with the ongoing collaboration’s use of glow-in-the-dark snakeskin. Check out more images after the jump and get your passport in order because these will hit atmos in late October.
