Adidas x Metropolitan ZX 8000 Shoes – Core Black / Yellow Tint / Customized





Adidas x Metropolitan ZX 8000 Shoes

Delivering a nostalgic ‘90s aesthetic that is reminiscent of the underground street-racing subculture, these adidas x Metropolitan ZX 8000 Shoes display an unrivalled colour pairing of core black, tinted yellow and energetic purple. The upper is constructed from Honey buck leather, suede and breathable ZX mesh, whilst the addition of reflective leather toe overlays, plastic eyestays, 3M flashes and signature ZX 8000 embroidery supply these sneakers with subtle references to its after-dark racing roots. Re-imagining a much-loved ‘80s silhouette, adidas and Metropolitan have styled these technical lace-ups with a performance-focused Torsion midsole, an icy clear outsole and with an all-black heel brace for added support that stylishly shadows a debossed trefoil decal on the ankle. Innovative ripstop-tech material embodies the tongue whilst a rubberized adidas trefoil label seals this collaborative design. With a nod towards OG import tuner cars, these mixed material sneakers are uniquely signed off, quite literally, with ‘Metropolitan’ font detailing on the soul of each foot and fuzzy neon sock liners that succeed in embodying the brand’s desire to bridge the gap between what’s technical and what’s fun.

A brand brought back to life in 2017 by HUF-founder Keith Hufnagel and Hanni El Khatib, Metropolitan’s latest collaboration with adidas is one inspired by ‘90s lifestyle and a passion for the era’s fast-paced subculture of street-racing. Introducing loud and proud stylings saturated with neon shades and pops of unexpected colour, each statement piece effortlessly combines Metropolitan’s cut and sew design approach with adidas’s authentic aura to supply unmistakably nostalgic pieces of apparel.
