Slaw’s Take: I am certainly not a “shoe guy” so not sure I really have a “take”. Weird in this day in age, I know. EVERYTHING MUST BE A HOT TAKE. Well, I don’t have one. I do think it’s cool that adidas, a HUGE BRAND, is dropping some moto related shoes. So there you go, a TAKE!
Here is the official PR:
Continuing to build on shared passion for forward thinking design, adidas Originals and Kawasaki join forces once again with another addition to the collaborative ZX footwear collection. This iteration comes in the form of the ZX22 Kawasaki, a future-ready sneaker inspired by the experimental forms and materials of the Kawasaki vehicle.
Kawasaki and adidas reignite their collaboration that fuses the aesthetic of the Japanese powersports titan into the world of the celebrated ZX sneaker range. The ZX22 Kawasaki sneaker is inspired by the form of futuristic vehicles such as the Ninja® ZX™ line of sport motorcycles. This future-ready silhouette is featured in a bold metallic colorway accented with black and lime green details. The ZX22 utilizes a co-branded metallic silver leather with reflective three-stripe branding that sits on a chunky midsole unit with BOOST cushioning that is supported by a bold heel cage accented with the Kawasaki brand’s famous lime green and black colors. A Kawasaki Ninja® graphic can be found on the lateral.
Arriving on November 24th, 2022, the collaborative ZX22 Kawasaki sneakers are available globally (excl. China) through adidas stores, adidas.com, confirmed, and select retailers. Additionally, the ZX22 Kawasaki will also be available directly from Kawasaki*.
