The A-ZX series continues this November with the University of Miami
After a really quiet October (with only 2 releases that didn’t release in the PH), adidas Originals continues on with their A-ZX series, this time with another long-time partner.
adidas has been supporting several US NCAA teams as their official outfitter for all types of sports, be it basketball, football, and so on. It’s practically a no-brainer for the brand to team up with one of the more storied sports programs in the US with the University of Miami aka ‘the U’. Similar to the National Parks collab, adidas and the U utilized the ZX 5000 for their entry.
While it may look pretty low key compared the previous A-ZX releases, this ZX 5000 takes on the school’s iconic colors (we’ve seen them on those classic UltraBoosts and basketball silhouettes). The shoe uses white patent leather and ballistic nylon for its upper, with contrasting electroplated TPU heel counters done in the school’s Orange and Green colors. The school’s colors are also found on the inside tongue as well as the U’s logo found on the outsole. To complete the look, co-branded logos are found on the lace jewels, sockliners and tongue tabs.
The adidas Originals ZX 5000 ‘the U’ drops this Friday, November 6 and will be available via the adidas PH website, adidas app and eventually via Commonwealth. The shoe retails for Php 7,500 and will drop midnight on the adidas platforms.
