The ADIDAS ORIGINALS ZX 25TH ANNIVERSARY NEGATIVE PACK has onlookers scratching their heads: there’s an aire of familiarity to the off-key colours, but you’ve not seen anything like it before. You could probably lump these in the Oddity zone, but you’d still be wrong. Invert your screen colours and things will suddenly click: these are the original ZX 5000, ZX 8000 and ZX 9000 models, but in reverse! Greens and blues have turned to reds and oranges for a totally different look.
Once you’ve got your head around the theme, there’s plenty to like about this set. Adidas are kings of the strong colourways, often using popular bold schemes (especially on the ZX releases), so these slightly off-kilter options are pretty unusual. As these are a bit of a quick-fire/fun release to celebrate 25 years of ZX family, we have a feeling that they’ll become hard to find in the future. We’ve talked about the fantastic running technology many times recently and it goes without saying that you get a lot of shoe for your money on the ZXs.
The ZX 9000 comes in Dark Brown/Zest/Macaw, the ZX 8000 comes in Nomad Red/Collegiate Royal and the ZX 5000 comes in Carbon/Orange Beauty. The ADIDAS ORIGINALS ZX 25TH ANNIVERSARY NEGATIVE PACK is out on the 1ST APRIL: click the banner below for more details.
