Your #TheCrew background check
I don't make a secret of it, dear community, the sneaker takes its inspiration from the Boston Marathon! You knew that anyway, after all that is its name. But what does it mean in detail? The Boston Marathon is the longest marathon with a great tradition next to the Olympic Games. For 124 years now, the best runners in the world have been meeting and competing here!
But where is the reference to the silver, shimmering upper of the sneaker? Do you know the term mylar blanket, dear community? That is simply a warming blanket made of just such a silver material. And this recovery blanket is often put on the runners at the Boston Marathon to prevent injuries and hypothermia, especially after the race. Yes, and why not just make a shoe out of it? No sooner said than done!
If you've been a bit involved with the A-ZX Series from adidas, you know that every time they have used special colorways and themes! Let's remember for example the Atmos X adidas ZX 8000 'G-SNK 3' which came onto the market lately. So, what do you think of this colorway? Lets have a look at the details.
Concepts X adidas ZX 9000 'Boston Marathon' - the details
The retailer Concepts is itself based in Boston and has teamed up with adidas to design this stylish sneaker. The motto Boston Marathon couldn't be more appropriate, after all, the adidas ZX family has its origins in the world of sports and especially running. If you are interested in the complete history of the adidas ZX series, take a look here.
We have now seen the upper, silver, shiny, special! Add to that some dark blue and grey elements, like the classic TPU overlays on the heel of the sneaker for example. The three stripes come in red, white and blue-grey. A special feature are also the laces and the co-branding of adidas and Concepts on the tongue.
Here you get a list of all retailers who sell the shoe on September 12th. And of course we have some visual impressions of the kicks for you! Let's go!
