adidas Originals Adizeros Adios 2 – Run Thru Time 00s
As part of the Run Thru Time series, adidas released a range of three running-inspired styles that spans three decades. The Run Thru Time range highlights great heritage, bringing the past 30 years, the 80s, 90s and 00s, back to life in a fresh, contemporary way.
Iconic Running Shoes
The pack of nine shoes takes three iconic running silhouettes – the ZXZ ADV from the 80s; the ZX 5000 Response from the 90s; and the Adizeros Adios 2 from the 00s, available from eBay here.
Each of the shoes are expressed in three colourways. Celebrating their international launch, adidas Originals teamed up with South African filmmaker Chris Saunders to represent this execution through a 3-part series of short films that was launched in three stages and released at events in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.
First Launched In Cape Town
The first launch took place in Cape Town, highlighting the 80s execution based on the classic mesh, vintage suede and reflective stripes look and feel. Taking inspiration from the legendary ZX 500, which was adidas’ flagship distance running shoe when it was debuted back in the mid-80s, the ZXZ ADV finds Kazuki Kuraishi forging a signature ZX trainer of his own for the Originals 84-Lab range.
Moving with trends, adidas running shoes in the 00s began to incorporate lifestyle aspects alongside the purely performance elements, with more casual materials and colours used. As well as setting the latest fashion, the new millennium brought with it a technological revolution, which adidas utilised to ensure that their running shoes stayed at the forefront of the market.
The adidas future-oriented philosophy takes inspiration from what worked in the past. The Run Thru Time range is infused with the past three decades of adidas Originals heritage, in a fresh, contemporary fashion.
The casual inspired execution of the Run Thru Time range involves a premium mix of materials like soft leather and nubuck, making the shoes comfortable and pleasant to wear.
