IRAK and adidas Originals Debut GORE-TEX Equipped ZX 8000s
Adidas Originals‘ A-ZX line is now collaborating with the New York City’s streets IRAK on the ZX 8000. They are revisiting its color scheme — and the palette of a follow-up pair from 2008 — on this duo of new GORE-TEX equipped makeups. The legendary graffiti crew helmed by Kunle “EARSNOT” Martins and Jesse “NEMEL” Geller had teamed up with adidas in 2007 for a memorable EQT Support Runner that’s the best Trefoil collaborations from the aughts.
Fresh styles have been amended to read “2020,” in this silhouette but apart from that largely the silhouette has the same features as it’s predecessors. The IRAK’s inagural adidas collaborations were large text hits on the toebox that nodded to the year of production.
One keeps both base and midfoot uniform with silver hues, equips volt on the Three Stripe midfoot graphic and toebox, adds bright crimson to the tongue, laces and rear trim and finishes with a dash of blue towards the forefoot. The other uses a black base with metallic silver accents, a red toebox, volt laces and a purple tongue. The difference is seen in the branding and midsole too, with the former taking on black tones in both spots while the latter uses grey and red. Each is rounded off by a black heel cage and a black GORE-TEX hit on the midfoot.
