Always pushing boundaries, adidas Originals propelled their classic ZX lineage into the future earlier this year when they unveiled their ultramodern ZX 4000 4D runner. This season the cushioning model returns once more in a ‘Black Onix’ colourway.
A technical innovation like no other, the silhouette’s data-driven 4D Futurecraft midsole was constructed using a breakthrough digital printing process that transforms liquids into solids – producing the world’s first high-performance midsole made from light, liquid resin and oxygen. Its single component design is precisely tuned for controlled energy return, meaning the energy exerted from each of your steps is transferred into your next stride.
adidas’ sock-like Primeknit wraps around the contours of your foot for snug comfort, while supportive suede overlays nod to archival ZX styles and provides a multi-textured aesthetic. The ZX 4000 does away with the brand’s usual stitched Three Stripes, instead opting for a welded TPU alternative, finishing the pair with a streamlined style. But in true adidas fashion, the model’s moniker embellishes the medial sidewall panelling and across the leather tongue eyelet.
The adidas Originals ZX 4000 4D ‘Black Onix’ will be available on Saturday 25th May via the size? previews app and in selected size? stores, priced at £280.
