ZX 10,000 C Overkill

by adidas Consortium

Berlin-based Overkill offers up a completely different take on the ZX 10,000 C. The vibrant panels of bright color are nowhere to be seen, replaced instead by a moodier combination of greys, magenta and blue. The result is a palette that calls to mind the gaming consoles that began to emerge around the same time as the original adidas ZX line.
The ZX 10000C Overkill features a diverse blend of natural and technical fabrications include mesh underlays and webbed Three Stripes, alongside premium suede overlays and reinforced TPU on the ghilly and heel. The shoe also features a Torsion bar, the thermoplastic arch support that has been a mainstay in high-performance adidas footwear since its introduction in 1988. For the new ZX 10000C upon which this Overkill model is based, the Consortium team sat down with original ZX designer Jacques Chassaing to ensure they captured the qualities of the Torsion system in a shoe that feels not only reverent to the past but suited to contemporary performance.
