adidas Originals’ fresh take on the A-ZX series is off to a great start, with several releases already available. This week, the Three Stripes is getting ready to release the project’s next entry, the ZX 8000 “Thanos”, courtesy of deadHYPE.

adidas Originals’ A-ZX series, originally from the early 2000s, is back for 2020, bringing with it a host of both old and new ZX releases, and adding some interesting new collaborators to the mix. This week, adidas has tapped Berlin-based creative collective deadHYPE for the next entry in the ZX project. The collective is made up of members all around the world and started to help them grow their creativity as well as their skills in their specific craft. For this release, deadHYPE worked on the adidas ZX 8000, taking some color inspiration from Marvel, and giving it the nickname “Thanos”. This ZX 8000 comes with a canvas base for the upper, meant to be easily customizable and able to withstand dirt and debris of all kind. The overlays and inner lining are made from leather, to let the shoe age well and survive long past the usual footwear expiration date.


The adidas A-ZX series continues this week, with the release of deadHYPE’s ZX 8000 “Thanos”. The tonal purple colorway will be available on September 10th, 2020, from both adidas and select retailers, likely with a price tag above $140. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more adidas release news.
