Watch: adidas A-ZX Series

Celebrating the rich and important history of the adidas ZX Series, the German sportswear legends embark on a journey through the past, present and future of the ZX.

An icon of footwear innovation, the ZX Series from adidas has an important place in the history books for its introduction of the German brand's Torsion System. Redefining running technology on release back in 1984, the ZX encapsulated fans with its bold and colourful outlook, practical construction and futuristic tech.

A favourite of football casuals and ravers alike, the ZX Series has been a mainstay on the terraces and dancefloors through the Second Summer of Love and beyond. Celebrating the iconic sneaker line, adidas are embarking on a 26-style series, filled with collaborations and unique, limited edition colourways over the next few months, kicking off with the A-ZX 1000 C "Retro" and the A-ZX ZX8000 "Shelltoe".
