China’s Hey Tea Serves Up a Freshly Brewed ZX 7000 for adidas A-ZX Series
Fresh off its 30th-anniversary celebration of Torsion tech, adidas will be taking their revered lineage into its fourth decade with another trip down memory lane. Across 2021 and 2021, the brand is revisiting its A-ZX concept, a project from 2008-09 that enlisted a wide range of global partners to put their touch of a bevy of 26 lettered ZX releases (see the table below). The reimagined collection for was kicked off last week with the letter R — for retro — with a reissue of the OG ZX 1000C, and having just unveiled the letters B (BAPE & Undefeated), J (Juventus), and N (National Parks), it’s now time for the letter H — a collaboration with China’s Hey Tea.
The East Asian bubble tea franchise brings a fruity flavor to their effort on the adidas ZX 7000, pairing crisp milky whites with very-berry pastel pinks and deep purples. the latter covers the majority of the forefoot, with sleek white textile uppers cascading down from white in the rear, slowing graduating to barely-there pinks, to stark maroons at the toe. The latter is encased in a milky-translucent overlay — as is the branded tongue tag — with clean white overlays at the eyestays and heel. Dripping accents over the heel and forefoot of the split-blocked midsole add some extra character to the design, before meeting upon a classic black rubber outsole for completion.
Official looks at the pair have already surfaced, indicating a very close release, though a date is yet to be confirmed by adidas.
