Continuing to foster their ZX collaborations under adidas Consortium, Packer shoes further elaborates on what has now become a two-part story: whereas their first take on the ZX9000 acted as a heartfelt love letter to the New Jersey state flower, the follow up is essentially its evolution ridden with thematic transformations much, much darker by comparison. Sat atop the Torsion silhouette, the “Mega Violet” speaks more on what could become of our environment at the hands of our own negligence. Being locked in bags marked “BIOHAZARD,” the pair evokes pollution and corruption through a palette of darkened pinks, shriveled greys, and seemingly radioactive purple bases, with fabrications following along through suede overlays brushed for a distressed effect and mesh bearing full-on aggression. Pigskin leathers are by and large the most ordinary, though they add a luxe accompaniment to the rest of the overall kit; at the bottoms translucent panels attach, sitting among some of the more subtle embellishments like the cobranded tongue loops, graphic insoles, and lace dubraes. Grab a detailed look at all that and more right here, and if you’re interested in grabbing a pair, they’ll be available both in-store and online at the retailer come 12:00PM EST on October 12th.
