The adidas ZX 8000 “Light Aqua” is the original colorway of the classic technical running shoe. The special release marks adidas’s celebration of their famed Torsion technology’s 30th anniversary with the ZX 8000 returning as a near replica to the original 1989 release. The modern version of the shoe now includes fuzzy suede green overlays and panels on the upper. Both the toe and mid-panel sport a white base with an overlapping gradient blue-ish aqua pattern. Tan Three-Stripes branding covers the mid-panel and toe and is visible on the sock liner as well. The midsole with adidas’s Torsion technology takes on a seafoam hue and is finished off with a black outsole to give the vintage shoe a late-80s vibe. The adidas ZX 8000 “Light Aqua” was released on November 16, 2019.
