From the ground up

We received an interesting box from adidas Originals at Highsnobiety HQ today. Contained within a triangular, metal, light-up container was the H3LIUM ZXZ Runner – adidas’ lightest shoe ever – alongside a pair of adidas x Sennheiser headphones, an adidas-skinned iPod Nano (with Big Sean, B.o.B. and Mick Boogie music) a flipbook and a USB key.

The sole of the shoe pays homage to the ZX8000, an adidas running shoe known for its comfort and stability. Technology from F50 soccer cleat was used to simplify the shoe’s structure, making it lighter while still maintaining its structural integrity. As a result H3LIUM is lightweight, breathable and made with a simple construction that provides comfort and support.

The launch of the full collection hits stores on December 26th and will include 9 colorways altogether, but will be online starting December 15th at

See all colorways and a H3LIUM commercial after the click.
