The men's adidas Originals ZX 8000 launched in 1989 and promptly set a world record at the Rotterdam Marathon. Fast-forward to today, and the sneaker remains one of the most iconic and revered ZX models. These shoes feature the revolutionary TORSION® midfoot support that put the ZX family in a class of its own. The lightweight mesh upper is supported by suede overlays, a pairing inspired by the adidas archive. Includes lightweight EVA cushioning, a heel stabiliser and a slip-resistant rubber outsole.
