adidas has spent the last few years updating some of their classic sneakers with Boost technology. The latest silhouette to take on the beaded foam comes from one of the brand’s most memorable franchise, the ZX500 line.

The adidas ZX500 first released in 1984 as the brand’s offering for high-mileage running. The shoe became immensely popular due to its performance and comfort and has now become a beloved Originals silhouette in the modern era. The last time we saw the ZX500, the shoe was true to the original, a collector’s dream. This time around though, adidas is bringing the 80’s cult classic into the future with their beaded Boost technology. The past couple of months have seen several collaborations use the ZX500 RM as a canvas, and now, adidas has prepared a special release for the timeless runner. Similar to another adidas ZX release coming soon, the new “Sand” colorway features some sort of embroidered writing on either side of the tongue. On the upcoming ZX4000, these appear to be a list of names, possibly as a reference to the design team. However, no official statement has been made, leaving us in the dark for now.


The latest in adidas’ line of ZX500 RM colorways is scheduled to release alongside the matching ZX4000_4D on March 9th, 2019. The smooth new look retails for the usual $140, and is expected to release from both adidas and select retailers stateside soon.
