adidas breathe more life into the ZX range, making over the ZX 500 silhouette with a streamlined woven upper in a variety of colours.
We’ve recently seen a lot of attention on the ZX 8000 shape thanks to the new ZX Flux (which also featured the Weave tag), but it’s important not to forget other icons of the ZX range like the 500, which celebrates its 30th year in 2014. Traditional panelling is replaced by threads woven in different patterns and directions to give the feel of depth and texture, though the upper remains relatively seamless save for a couple of additional textile panels on the heel. The model is available in a variety of colours that includes pastel shades of Clear Blue and St Tropic Bloom, bold Electric Yellow, Poppy and Solar Blue hues and a few black, navy and grey options. The all white/off-white weave is a definite stand out and will no doubt be a fan favourite despite how difficult it will be to keep clean.
