For the second drop of their SS19 collection and the final instalment of the collaboration, the two brands once again fuse the industrial precision of the sportswear giant to the artisanal craftsmanship of the Japanese leather specialists.
Bringing their partnership to a blistering crescendo adidas unlocks the power of 4D for Hender Scheme with two fresh takes on the revolutionary ZX 4000 4D silhouette. Each pair featuring Hender Scheme's signature leathers, the textile is reimagined in a new context atop a pioneering 4D sole unit.
The new drop represents a logical continuation from the FW18 collaboration between the two brands, which saw Hender Scheme bring their artisanal sensibilities to a range of ZX500 running shoes. This season, Hender Scheme advances further down the evolutionary tree of the ZX series with their take on its most recent iteration: the ZX 4000 4D.
At the base of the two new pairs lies the high-performance 4D midsole, the first of its kind to utilize Digital Light Synthesis technology. The result is a lattice-like midsole created from light, air and liquid, taking the form of over 20,000 struts that can be individually tuned to maximize control on energy return.
Upon these foundations sit uppers crafted from both adidas Primeknit textiles and Hender Scheme leather. While across both pairs the 4D sole retains its distinctive green coloring, the uppers of one pair take on a monochromatic, blacked-out look, and the other pair sports more classic ‘ZX’ colors: metallic grey, crystalline white and top-stitched red compliment the distinctive patina of Hender Scheme’s nude leather.
