To pay homage to their classic ZX line, Adidas created the aZx series, a series of ZX sneakers designed by several hand picked premier sneaker shops from across the globe.

Each of the collaborators within the aZx series represents a letter in the alphabet including the Rivington Club (R), Major DC (M), Wood Wood (W), Limited Editions (L), Foot Patrol (F), and many more.

For their part in the aZx project, London’s Foot Patrol selected the Adidas ZX800.
