adidas’ Torsion system debuted on the ZX 8000 in 1988 with the promise of arch support for athletes across all disciplines, and it certainly delivered.

Not only is it synonymous with the subculture-favourite ZX line, but it regularly stabilises some of the Three Stripes’ most beloved modern sneakers, too. Only right, then, that it ticks off the A-ZX range’s letter T, inspiring this ZX 5000. The entire shoe — from ripstop upper to EVA-cushioned midsole — is bright yellow in homage to the tech’s original colourway. The bar itself bridges the forefoot and heel, as always, for dependable support whether you’re hitting the track, the court or a rave.
