adidas’ Consortium sector has been on fire with their releases this year. This month, boutique Commonwealth has given the ZX500 RM a clean new update themed after the ocean.

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. While the updated silhouette has released in a wide range of colorways and collaborations this year, this month marks the first time it goes under the knife of the adidas Consortium sector.

Teaming up with Commonwealth, adidas has created a premium new iteration of the ZX500 RM. The upper begins with a white mesh upper that features a translucent outer layer to show the inner workings. The outer paneling layers are made up of a smooth white suede, using a welded TPU to secure them instead of standard stitching. Finally, the Three Stripes and heel tab come in light blue and red to mimic tones of an ocean breeze.


The Commonwealth x adidas Consortium ZX500 RM is scheduled to make its debut on December 8th at Commonwealth, before releasing globally on the 15th. Currently, most information regarding the silhouette has not been released, though the price point is expected to rise above the ZX500 RM’s standard $140.
