The adidas ZX 9000 doesn’t boast the mainstream popularity of other propositions from the German sportswear institution, but a newly-surfaced triple-“Core Black” colorway complete with GORE-TEX protection is looking to change that.
The Torsion bar-supported silhouette maintains its standard design, but robust canvas, synthetic leather and plastic panels make up the entirety of the upper. “GORE-TEX” branding appears on a small tab on the lateral heel, while non-standard components join the mix at the Achilles’ heel, toe box and tongue. A speed lacing system and buckled-fastener deliver new functionality to the adidas Originals proposition, while helping create an outdoors-ready aesthetic. Lastly, the aggressive tread underfoot further prepares the sneaker for traversing rough terrain.
A stateside adidas.com release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but that’s likely to change before 2021 ends.
