Appeared last fall at the ZX Roots of Running exhibition, the adidas ZX 10000C Supercolor offers a colourful vision of a brand new retro design.
For the record, Adidas launched its first ZX in 1984. The first models carried hundred in serial numbers and it is in 1988 that the ZX passed in thousands with in particular the Adidas ZX 4000. 30 years later the Adidas ZX follows with its version 10000. After an exclusive collaboration with Overkill under the theme “I Can if I Want”, this time the silhouette focuses on the choice of a combination of many shades with this Adidas ZX 10000C Supercolor. Another notable fact is that the ZX series was born under the pencil strokes of Jacques Chassaing, the mythical French designer that made the Forum or the Continental 80s, to name a few.
Concerning the scheme developed for this Supercolor version, suede, mesh and plastic meet before being submerged by a multitude of shades that share the entire design. Offering an alliance between bright colours and dull ones, the ZX 10000 develops a dynamic volume, with strong reliefs generated by this superposition of panels. The contrast of textures offered by the plastic aspect of the heel and the retro of the suede on the front of the sneaker generates a significant visual shift. Finally, a set of interchangeable neon shoelace tag completes the design of the model.
Announced for early 2019 with the arrival of the spring collections, the model should quickly be announced officially.
