adidas Skateboarding teams up again with the infamous East Coast skate label, Metropolitan to deliver a technical pack inspired by 90s drift racing and a shared love of import car culture. The SS20 capsule takes on nostalgic race aesthetics from bold color palettes and 3D graphics to high-viz accents and high performance design.
A throwback to the lights and hues of late night street racing, a blacked-out adidas ZX 8000 headlines the collection reviving a 90s inspired colorway and reflective detailing. The iconic silhouette uses Torsion Bar technology to provide advanced support and adaptability, along with a mixed material upper of Honey Buck leather and reflective toe overlays. The style is finished with ripstop technology, a rubberized branded tongue label and unique transparent outsole.
In addition to the footwear, the collaboration will also offer a five piece apparel collection, an all-weather set led by a seam sealed jacket and pant that combines track-inspired design and outdoor technology for late night meets.
Look for the Metropolitan x adidas ZX 8000 and apparel to release on March 21st at select skate shops and adidas.com.
