An evolved form of the 80’s favourite, adidas Originals have replaced the traditional foam tooling of the classic ZX500 runner and replaced it with BOOST cushioning technology. A pre-cursor to the seminal Torsion midsole technology that followed in the 90’s, 1984’s earlier ZX range of runners combined lightweight upper materials with even lighter midsole compounds to give you the comfiest ride possible. Dual density EVA give you cushioning underfoot, and stability came in the form of a plastic moulded heel counter which kept everything (and your foot) in place. Breathable mesh was implemented into the toebox and nylon underlays sat underneath the three leather stripe to keep your feet insulated while out running,
Fast-forward 34 years and after several re-issues of its original form, the ZX500 returns with the addition of a new BOOST midsole and updated upper complete with fused stripes and re-engineered mesh underlays. Encased within the BOOST sit several layers of density foam, designed to give you the most comfortable wear possible, and created to emphasise the update in technologies since the original model.
Returning as a size? exclusive release, the latest iteration arrives in a ‘Navy/Red/White’ colour palette that borrows from classic adidas Originals releases of years gone by. Constructed from mesh and premium suede, the latest rendition uses white as a base colour, with classic red Three Stripes detailing on the sidewall and heel, with accents of navy found on the upper, tongue branding, toe box.
The size? Exclusive adidas Originals ZX500 BOOST ‘Navy/Red/White’ will be available via the size? previews app and in all size? stores on Monday 1st October, priced at £125.
