adidas ZX 800

  • MADE ON: --/05
  • ART.NO: 451870

Originally released in 1983, the ZX 800 has always been a symbol of adidas’ large footprint in the running shoe market. Inspiring speed and agility, the upturned toe box, Ghilly lacing system, three-part sole piece, and ribbed heel patch, have become a mark of comfort and quickness.

With an light ‘ocean’ blue, orange, and ‘shadow’ grey colorway, this running shoe is a perfect spring time release. The fresh colors combine to make an interesting combination that isn’t as obvious as other kicks dropped in 2005.

To be honest, it ain’t really a combo for me personally, but I can certainly see why folks would dig it; the bright colors literally spring out against the darker ‘shadows’ of the silhouette. Kudos adidas, for taking a chance from time to time and experimenting in ways other brands might not.
