A ZX 8000 created in collaboration with streetwear publication Highsnobiety.
Qualität means “quality” in German, and the latest in adidas’ A-ZX Series is certainly deserving of that title. It’s a ZX 8000 created in collaboration with streetwear publication Highsnobiety, and you have to look closely to appreciate its premium finer details.
The neutral-toned upper is as you’d expect from the retro runner — teaming breathable mesh with soft leather — but the usual neon lace tag is swapped out for a HS-debossed version, and the same insignia appears at the heel, too. It’s business as usual underfoot, though, with EVA foam and stabilising Torsion tech guaranteeing a comfortable ride through the city.
