What we say: Offspring and adidas are embarking on a new multi-sneaker collaboration as an extension of the 2019 ‘London to LA’ pack. This week the UK retailer gives us a first look at the latest entry in the partnership, as the ‘London to LA’ LA Part 2 “is driven by an intriguing take on the ZX 9000.
Drawing inspiration from Offspring’s British roots, the ZX 9000 “London” is inspired by the raw and industrious architecture of the city. As a result, the sneaker appears with what would usually be considered unfinished details, such as exposed foam on the side stripes, a reverse tongue label, and an exposed product label. Additionally, the hairy suede implementation is aimed at giving the ZX 9000 a more industrial feel.
As the sneaker is a celebration of the British capital, a nod to the Thames is present on the heels, with the coordinates of London shown below. The soles then present a map of the city, showing precisely the locations of the Offspring stores. As for the colourway, the blue and red accents refer directly to the Union Jack flag, while touches of turquoise are reminiscent of the OG ZX 9000, a shoe that has long been a favorite in the UK.
The initial version of the “London to LA Part 2” pack, the ZX 9000 “London” follows offspring’s previous reinterpretations of the ZX 8000 and ZX 10000. The sneaker is expected to hit stores and online at Offspring on July 24.
