adidas Originals ZX 500 (Super Green/Metallic Silver)

adidas Originals bring a Summer ready colourway of their classic ZX 500 in a minty green.

The ZX 500 is one of the most classic running shoes from adidas, originally being released in 1984, it’s a silhouette that has standed the test of time and is still going strong. This pastel green, metallic silver, off-white and red colourway does a lot of good for the silhouette and incorporates some classic adidas running features (mainly the metallic silver leather) without being too loud. The mixture of materials also harks back to the classic running era of the mid 80s; fine mesh, rich suede, leather details and a bit of plastic on the heel. Lovely stuff.

It’s definitely one of those colour combinations that sound disgusting on paper, but the second you see it in the flesh it’s a pleasant surprise. These will look so good when rocked with a pair of jeans on a sunny day, or even better a pair of shorts (we can but hope).

Head over to Crooked Tongues where you can find these ZX 500’s for £67.
