Adidas ‘Bright Yellow’ ZX 5000 Torsion Available Friday January 22nd
Since its inception in 1988, Torsion technology has captivated sneaker enthusiasts and athletes alike. When the technology was first introduced, Adidas utilized its capabilities for trail running. The lightweight composition had arch support, maximizing the stability and comfort required by runners who preferred rough terrain. A newly implemented TPU arch was also provided within the heel and forefoot, allowing them to move independently from one another. This comfort and newfound support satisfied more than just runners but other subcultures that simply appreciated comfortable shoes. Soon the growing popularity of Torsion technology was shared by runners and music enthusiasts, helping the shoe gain notoriety. To showcase the well-developed technology, Adidas created the ZX collection combining comfortable and stylish footwear with its new mechanics. The first ZX line ran between 1984-89 and overtime implemented Torsion within its inner sole. Recently, Adidas has been reimagining the retro designs, fine-tuning the classics to fit within modern society.
The latest design from Adidas utilizes its popular ZX 5000 model, providing a monochromatic and striking colorway. The newer model reverts to the classic by showcasing the traditional mesh base as well as the TPU heel cover. Simplistic black details can be found throughout breaking up the ‘Bright Yellow’ hues. Retro Torsion branding can be seen stitched on top of the tongue and clipped along the cotton laces - contributing to its nostalgic sensation. A heel pull-tab attributes to its easy and quick application, perfect for those on the go. Adidas foam EVA cushioning is placed within the midsole optimizing comfort with each step.
