Although adidas’ A-ZX series is drawing to a close, the remaining releases prove that the Three Stripes Brand has not lost a single ounce of creativity since the campaign’s inception. Next in line is the letter X, which will be represented by the X-Ray-inspired “Inside Out” pack—a collection of ZX 6000 models featuring footprint graphics and translucent elements to channel a deconstructed aesthetic. Among the three pairs of the fittingly-dubbed “XZ 6000s” is a Bright Cyan and Chalk Coral arrangement that doesn’t seem to replicate nostalgic ZX 6000 colorways.
Instead of simply turning a preexisting ZX 6000 “inside out,” this proposition opts for a new color scheme that still delivers a throwback style. The Bright Cyan textile uppers are overlapped by grey-tinted, transparent overlays throughout for an X-ray vision display of the shoe’s interior construction. These TPU applications, along with the Chlak Coral side stripes, use obvious stitching details to further the raw look. On the toe and heel, plush grey overlays with yellow exposed foam offer an aged look. The midsole sees a beige tint that similarly adds years to the design. To round out the design, the insole and outsole both use graphics derived from technical drawing that invites wearers to take a step back and admire what’s behind the design of the iconic ZX 6000.
Enjoy official images of the ZX 6000 below as you wait for the “Inside Out” to arrive at select retailers like Naked on May 14th, with a price tag of $144.
