IRAK x GORE-TEX x adidas ZX 8000: They are back!!

I for ZX 8000 IRAK: In the course of the adidas A-ZX series, IRAK and adidas come together again to impress us with two IRAK x GORE-TEX x adidas ZX 8000 models at once. Many of you will still remember, in 2007 the IRAK x adidas collaboration already released a style that made the hearts of all sneaker fans beat faster!

IRAK x GORE-TEX x adidas ZX 8000 - the details

You probably already know, dear community, adidas is currently returning its 2008 A-ZX series. That means for us: We get a total of 26 really special drops from the adidas ZX models, many of them in pretty cool collabs. All letters of the alphabet get their very own style here. And the 'I' is what stands for the ZX 8000 IRAK!

You want to know more about the series? In this blogpost we'll tell you everything that has already been released, everything that is still to come and everything that is only speculated about so far!

IRAK, a graffiti crew from New York City, give the sneakers their very own style. But that's not all, because we also find GORE-TEX in the name. That means: the sneaker comes with GORE-TEX materials, which make it not only robust and durable, but also waterproof and still breathable.

And last but not least, I have to say that the two colorways look extremely good! As we know it from the ZX series, there is also an extremely comfortable wearing comfort, good damping and the typical retro vibes. Furthermore, the running silhouette features the so-called Torsion System, which is supposed to guarantee the freedom of movement of the back and forefoot.

IRAK x adidas: an awesome comeback

Well, which CW do you like better? adidas did a great job again and chose two extremely nice collaborators for their 'I' of the A-ZX series. In addition to the special colours, which also run through the ZX history, the branding is not neglected in our two new styles. On the toe box of both sneakers you can find the writing: IRAK 2020. GORE-TEX is on the side of the shoes and on the tongue we find, as usual, the adidas Originals logo.

As for the upper, you can look forward to materials like leather, suede and the typical TPU overlays. At the first drop of the collaborators, the sneakers were sold out instantaneously, so this time you may also have to be fast! Just a reminder: On September 4th the Kicks will celebrate their release. You can register for the Raffle now by clicking on the button and the photos, or you can get up early on Friday or stay up late, because the sneakers will be on the market at 00:00 am.

So, enough talking, check out all retailers and the nice pictures from our partner asphaltgold. (Pssst: We recently talked to Dani Benz, the CEO of asphaltgold about many interesting aspects in a personal interview! Did you miss that? Then here you can get to part 1 - about the new branding, and part 2 - which gives a very personal insight.
