What happens when one of the world’s most notorious instruments of foot destruction joins forces with a brand dedicated to foot preservation? The Adidas Originals ZX 8000 LEGO sneakers, which should have hard plastic stud-covered insoles but probably don’t.
Part of Adidas’ year-long A-ZX collaboration event, the ZX 8000 LEGO sneakers trick out the iconic ZX 8000 silhouette with bright primary colours and rubber Lego studs on the heels.
Could those heel studs be used to attach Lego bits to your footwear? Can you combine them with Lego’s robotics system to create robot shoes? Probably not, that’s rubber and not hard plastic. You could probably stick a minifigure or two on there. Or you could just keep them on a shelf and never wear them at all, because people do that with sneakers now.
The Adidas Originals ZX 8000 LEGO sneakers come with six different lace colour options, for funsies, as well as interchangeable Lego brick lace jewels, which also might support a minifig.
The Lego Adidas will be available starting September 25 on the official Adidas A-ZX website. I am sure there will be plenty available and everyone who wants one will get a pair because that’s how supply and demand works.
