For the letter “M” in their 26-part A-ZX series, adidas links up with fellow German company Meissen, Europe’s oldest porcelain manufacturer, on the ZX 10000.
Inspired by a traditional handcrafted porcelain floral vase, the Meissen x adidas ZX 10000 features a premium white leather upper decorated with floral print. Semi-translucent material is used for the eyes-stays and Three Stripes. To offer a clean look, branding usually found on the tongue and lace stay has been removed, with a small Meissen emblem found on the outsole’s Torsion tooling.
The Meissen x adidas ZX 10000 will be available globally on December 18th via adidas.com/a-zx (Confirmed app in the US) and select retailers for a retail price of $160 USD. The two have also created a 1-of-1 ZX 8000 with actual porcelain overlays (pictured below). This piece of art is currently up for auction via Sothebys, with a current bid of $8,500 USD at the time of writing this post.
