adidas Consortium ZX 10.000 C x Overkill

29. Mar 2019
Overkill has since grown into a go-to destination for the latest and greatest sneaker and apparel drops from some of the world?s most sought-after brands. Throughout the store?s recent developments, the vision and passion for the culture have remained a constant for Marc Leuschner, who became co-owner of the store in 2008. No matter how much the store and its selections evolve, one thing remains a constant: Marc's love for the ZX range of running shoes that adidas first launched in 1984 and ran until 1991.

This time and the second edition of the ZX 10.000 C x Overkill, offers up a completely different take on the shoe. The vibrant panels of bright colour are nowhere to be seen, replaced instead by a moodier combination of greys, magenta and blue. The result is a palette that calls to mind the gaming consoles that began to emerge around the same time as the original adidas ZX line.

The ZX 10.000 C Overkill features a diverse blend of natural and technical fabrications include mesh underlays and webbed Three Stripes, alongside premium suede overlays and reinforced TPU on the ghilly and heel. The shoe also features a Torsion bar, the thermoplastic arch support that has been a mainstay in high-performance adidas footwear since its introduction in 1988. For the new ZX 10.000 C upon which this Overkill model is based, the Consortium team sat down with original ZX designer Jacques Chassaing to ensure they captured the qualities of the Torsion system in a shoe that feels not only reverent to the past but suited to contemporary performance.

The adidas Consortium ZX 10.000 C x Overkill launches at W.W. Aarhus, W.W. Berlin, W.W. Copenhagen and on Saturday, April 13.
