Before the adidas Ultra Boost dominated the sneaker scene as a stylishly innovative running shoe in the 2010s, the adidas ZX series was considered the pinnacle of adidas running technology in the ’80s. However, ZX models are far from becoming obsolete, especially with the Three Stripes’ A-ZX program to celebrate the franchise via twenty-six unique drops. The brand continues to pay homage to the footwear line by crafting new Ultra Boost 1.0 DNA releases inspired by OG ZX colorways, such as the ZX6000.
Similar to the Torsion-cushioned silhouette, the Ultra Boost keeps its Primeknit uppers in a bright white while tinting its Boost foam sole in a cream-like shade. The green and red side stripes on the retro runner are reprised by this new pair’s lace cages. The stripes on the lace cages also squeeze in a hint of yellow to replicate the suede overlays on the ZX6000. A red inside and two-toned branding on the tongue continue the imitation effort. To complete the design, the signature neon Torsion System-branded lace dubrae and a Torsion bar underfoot are both included, as a fashion of old-school and modern adidas innovations.
Take a look at the hybrid style ahead as you wait to snag a pair at select retailers on April 8th.
And for another ZX-informed Ultra Boost, check out the one inspired by the ZX9000.
