With the adidas Originals ZX line celebrating it’s 25th anniversary this year, here is a look at three new iterations of the ZX 9000, ZX 8000 and ZX 5000 as part of the ‘Negative’ Pack. The name of the collection is derived from the fact that each colorway is the final product of photographic negatives of the original colorways. While the originals were quite subdued, the outcome of this pack is far more eye catching, and will certainly be sought after by fans of the three stripes.
When it was first released in 1989, the ZX 8000 was more than just a new shoe. Part of the pioneering ZX Family, it was a calculated step forward that captured the hearts of dedicated athletes and street-level casuals the world over. 25 years later, through the next generation, the ZX FLUX, we see the original formula of the ZX 8000 taking a brand new direction that strips it all back to the strictly essential, original DNA.
Doubling as the official CARBON launch party, this event will see artists Patrick Martinez (LA) and Vans the Omega (ADL) interpreting the original DNA of the ZX Flux through multiple installations around the venue. Installations will be accompanied by a soundtrack provided by Can’t Say DJs.
CARBON ticket holders get exclusive access, including Free Bulleit Bourbon and Temple Brewing Company beers, from 7.00 – 8.00 pm. (Ticket holders’ names will be on the door.)
Old silhouette, new life, adidas Originals are all about bringing heritage into the modern day and hit the nail pretty sweetly on the head with their ZX 5000 RSPN edition.

All three editions pictured in the gallery above are available at select adidas Originals retailers globally, you can get amongst the action online here.
adidas Originals presents a new colorway of the ZX 5000 RSPN from its spring/summer 2014 collection.

Peep your local adidas Originals retailer from April 1st to get amongst the action.
