The adidas ZX 8000 is one of the must-haves for fans, especially in the Aqua Colorway. Anyone who considers themselves a respectable adidas collector will buy the OG ZX 8000 with every re-release and ideally still has the very first one in their closet. Here you can find an overview of all current adidas ZX 8000 models:
The most famous colorway on the shoe, as mentioned above, is the aqua. Furthermore, retailers, designers and even David Beckham have not missed the opportunity to create their own version of the shoe. Let’s start with the guys from Overkill. Marc & Co not only had a huge adidas ZX 8000 Aqua cross the Spree at the end of last year, but also launched a collabo on the ZX 8000. The No Walls Needed Pack x Overkill includes 4 individual shoes that can be combined in any way. Even the details like laces and lace-jewels, can be changed depending on your preferences. The collabo celebrated 30 years of the fall of the Berlin Wall and should stand for boundlessness. Wear the shoes as you want and make of them what you want.
The Asian fashion brand Juun.J, reinterpreted the retro runner and made him a high top with leather uppers and Velcro closure on the collar. Unfortunately, the model is not often seen on the street, which is a shame.
Particularly surprising was a collabo that came about in 2009 with soccer superstar David Beckham and James Bond of Undefeated. It resulted in a total of two colorways that seem to be quite rare. The yellow/orange adidas ZX 8000 x David Beckham x James Bond is available for purchase on StockX for 1.6K. A total of 2 pairs are offered on the platform.
Besides the cool retro design, the sneaker also has a lot of comfort to offer.
The upper is breathable, and the true-to-the-original EVA sole still keeps you comfortable to this day. One of the biggest technological advances that the ZX series brought was the Torsion system, which never leaves you hanging in terms of support and stability.
You can get the shoe at adidas and other retailers like 43einhalb, Overkill, Asphaltgold and so on. The Aqua OG was recently re-released and can still be bought here and there with a bit of luck. If you’re interested in one of the older models, it gets a bit more complicated. Unfortunately, many of the collabos with Undefeated, Mita, Amos and Co are not too easy to find. With a little luck and skill, you can find one or the other older style of the ZX 8000.
