CONSORTIUM SERIES ZX5000
The ZX5000 Adidas x BAPE x UNDFTD
The ZX5000 was technically ahead of the game upon its release in the mid 80's, and now adidas Originals is bringing it back, giving the silhouette of two streetwear specialists, BAPE and UNDFTD, to design their own version for Consortium.
The labels pay homage to the camouflage trend using BAPE's signature camo print throughout. The suede print is predominant on the upper and tongue, with color blocks of khaki and taupe on the toe box and side panel and a khaki lace jewel. Technical details that were inherent to the original also appear on this version, too: an extended plastic wrap-around heel counter and a Torsion bar that can be seen in red on the outsole of the shoe.
Interestingly, the serrated 3-Stripes have been treated with leather in bright colors: blue, white and red, which pop against the upper. Gold foiling makes the shoe extra special with each brand's logo stamped on the heel tab - BAPE on one foot and UNDFTD on the other.
