The ZX 8000 first appeared in 1989 as a lightweight running model with superior cushioning and a range of more technical elements than previous members of the ZX family.
This version introduces a suede and patent leather combination to the upper in a grey and purple colourway for a clean and stylish result. The toe box and elements of the side panel are constructed in a fine grained, premium suede while the toe bumper and lace stays join up in patent grey with matching grey on the ghilly lacing system.
The Puralite midsole is a colour-blocked purple with small elements of grey, and works extremely well with the matching upper albeit in different materials. An up-to-date, fashionable interpretation of one of the most iconic runners in the adidas catalogue.
