Back in 2008, adidas debuted the original A-ZX series. The project pushed the boundaries of what the evolving field of special release product could achieve, with a comprehensive trip through the legendary range of ZX running shoes that paired a collaborative partner with the corresponding letter of the alphabet. (Incidentally, the ‘B’ in the original A-ZX was represented by a fondly remembered Bodega ZX 8000.)
A-ZX makes a triumphant return, with another deep dive into the ZX archive. This time around, instead of collaborative partners, each letter of the alphabet represents a different, conceptual tribute to the high tech running footwear that represented the era’s pinnacle of athletic performance.
'Q' is for Qualität. That would be "quality" in English. A collaborative effort with Highsnobiety pays tribute to the very first adidas running shoes. The hi-tech ZX 8000 silhouette features a mesh and premium nubuck upper, with cork sockliners and a variety of white shades and earth tones imparting a soft, minimalist aesthetic.
