Editor’s Notes: adidas is celebrating 30 years of Torsion System technology by bringing back four sneakers that first made the heralded ZX series popular: the ZX 5000, ZX 6000, ZX 7000, and ZX 9000. For reference, Torsion System debuted in the ZX range three decades ago. As part of the lookbook for the OG ZX range, adidas has produced imagery that closely mimics the brand’s memorable “I want, I can” campaign from the ’80s.
Three of the styles have already been released, with the XZ 9000 being the last to drop on August 31. Check them all out above.
