CASUAL-Kicks highlight


In order to understand the hybrid situation in shoes design I have decided to highlight the ZX 800 Casual by Adidas. Recently released with three new color combo this shoe is a perfect explanation of the mix from different background. Basically it's playing the Frankenstein game but with a better result... and this style is achieving it greatly by having this beautiful stitch that runs all the way to the back and leaving a great mocassin feel in front. The two last eyelet have been removed by those hiking hook while the rivet at the bottom part nicely repeat the metal feels. Notice that the sole too is a runner that changes completely the look that sneaker could have had with a cup sole or any other straight lined shape of sole. The rest is minimalist but the play on texture top it all nicely.
