adidas Originals ZX 700 at Crooked Tongues

This Fall adidas Originals is set to drop a white, blue and yellow colorway of the classic ZX 700 runner, which will be on hand at Crooked Tongues.

The adidas ZX 700 can get a little overlooked in favour of the 500, 600 and 800. Even looking at old catalogues, the 700 never seemed to circulate like its predecessors and sequel did, but it’s a beautiful piece of running shoe design. Some serious thought went into this 1985 creation, with a focus on overpronation and oversupination and plenty of biomechanical thinking in the design. The “wave profile” for support and traction is a mysterious addition that just sounds good and while the heel counter was akin to the one that the 600 introduced to us, that was a training release, while the ZX 700 was a more serious distance creation that felt a little more hardcore. On makeups like this, the ridged reflective panel and toe applications have been muted entirely with a synthetic suede treatment, but they still look impressive. While we’d sooner see the duo of meshes implemented, rather than the solitary version deployed on this variation, who can resist a UCLA colourway of anything? The maize and blue works perfectly here, with that solitary Ghilly eyelet in white finishing things perfectly, continuing a solid summer for fans of classic adidas running (watch this space for details of something very special along those lines) and these arrive in the Crooked Tongues store very soon. …
