Amid the Superstar‘s extensive 50th Anniversary celebration, adidas has carved out time for its lesser heralded, but equally important silhouettes. Among them, several have derived from the ZX line, which will soon add a ZX Torsion co-created by Tyler “Ninja” Blevins to accompany the “Time In” Nite Jogger. On the retro end, however, the ZX 8000 has been quietly amassing an impressive roster that now boasts a “Collegiate Green” option.
While free of any direct nods to Spring like the ZX 8000 Hanami Pack, the latest from Torsion-backed model is clad in a shade of green fit for the warmer months. Uppers keep their standard mesh and nubuck construction, forgoing any of the ripstop found on pairs co-created by adidas Skateboarding and Metropolitan. Profile 3-Stripes, branding on the tongue, collar lining and reflective accents on the heel are the most prominent interruptions to the “Collegiate Green” arrangement. “TORSION” branded lace dubraes feature their standard neon hue, albeit faint, unlike its counterpart underfoot.
Take a closer look at this tonal ZX 8000 here below before you head over to adidas.com to grab a pair right now for $120 USD.
