Design and Innovation

adidas enthusiast Robert Brooks loves technical running sneakers from the ‘80s and ‘90s.
For the adidas Collectors Project, Robert chose the ZX550, a shoe that eluded his grasp until only recently. The ZX550 was originally released in 1986 and the shoe stood out from other ZX's for its unique out-sole construction.

Robert’s version keeps the original colors of the sole unit and heel tab intact whilst adding his own spin with an earth-colored suede on the upper.

Amplifying one of his favorite running shoe features from this era, the entire heel patch is executed in 3M to ensure the shoe really pop at night.


The upper is constructed of suede and 3M.
The midsole is made of EVA foam with a TPU stabilizer.
The outsole is a compact poured rubber.
