adidas Originals SS14 ZX 5000

Throughout the ZX Series’ history, few shoes pushed forward to the future like the ZX 5000. Following the groundwork laid by models before it, this iconic shoe blended crucial elements of the ZX Series into a brand new design, culminating into a true symbol of performance footwear.

Contrasting with its rough and rugged predecessors, the ZX 5000 was intended as a lightweight runner with a focus on comfort. This was achieved through ultra-lightweight Polypag foam on the upper, reinforced with synthetic suede panels in all of the crucial areas.

What’s more, a brand new outsole design introduced a vital rotation zone and the Torsion system that allowed free independent movement of the forefoot and heel. With the finishing touch of an embossed rubber heel cage, the shoe gave subtle hints to the change that was still to come in this pioneering series.

Ultimately, the ZX 5000 presented a new approach to performance footwear; one that championed innovative footwear that actively adapted to the user, and not the other way around. For the trendsetters, however, it was foot first leap into the future that offered a totally new style to be adopted and adapted.
