adidas ZX 5000

The ZX 5000 was one of the first Adidas shoes to employ Torsion Technology, which uses an instep stability bar to simultaneously support the midsole and allow the forefoot and heel to move separately. This innovative technology allows the front of the runner’s foot to react and adapt to diverse terrains. The shoe’s significant cushioning made it a popular choice for middle- and long-distance runners in the late 80s.
