Do You Like The Futuristic Look Of The adidas Originals T-ZX Runner AMR?
The adidas ZX collection of running shoes has been around for years now. All the way back in 1984, adidas first introduced the ZX running shoe. And it has gone through a ton of changes over the years. Recently, adidas also introduced their AMR line during the 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend, and it got a pretty good response, due to the fact that adidas got Wale to cosign the adidas TS Lite AMR “Trophy Hunter” sneaker that they used to introduce the AMR line. And now, adidas has gone ahead and combined both the ZX and the AMR to create the adidas Originals T-ZX Runner AMR. It’s a really futuristic-looking sneaker that is technically a runner but that functions better as a casual lifestyle sneaker.
So what makes the T-ZX Runner AMR special? Well, as you can see, it features the traditional ZX 700 design but includes a synthetic AMR upper that really pops. The material that adidas uses on the AMR makes it look unlike any other running sneaker. The Three Stripes logo is molded onto the sneaker, and it’s complemented well by the nubuck collar on the sneaker and the extreme attention that’s paid to the details on and around the toe box of the sneaker. Even though it looks like a pretty basic sneaker from far away, there are actually a number of small details on it that make a big difference in the T-ZX Runner AMR’s overall look and feel. It’s a sneaker that has obviously been crafted very carefully.
With all of that in mind, are you on board with adidas Originals giving one of their classic ZX running sneakers an AMR makeover? Understandably, this sneaker will not be for everyone. Those who like the classic look of the ZX will probably shy away from it. But we like that adidas is using the new AMR technology that they have available to them to create new takes on classic sneakers. We could see ourselves turning plenty of heads by putting a pair of these on. Let us know how you feel about them, though. We’ve included a couple of extra shots of the sneakers below to give you a better idea of exactly what they look like.
