adidas is dropping its reimagined ZX Torsion silhouette today. The ZX Torsion takes design cues from classic ZX models, and this initial aqua, blue, yellow, and red colorway is a nod to the ZX 8000’s signature “Aqua” look.
Suede and mesh come together on the upper, while the quilted mesh tongue also pays homage to the ZX 8000. A Boost midsole is paired with EVA cup tooling, with rubber elements that point to OG ZX tooling. The sneaker features a translucent panel at the forefoot and a Torsion bar in the midfoot, one of adidas’ signature technical advances back in the day. The shoe is completed with reflective accents at the toe box and heel, as well as Trefoil branding on the tongue and heel.
