The new Adidas ZX 2K BOOST!
Adidas have spent the last few years experimenting with new levels of comfort, to bring the sneaker fiends of 2020 the next generation of ZX, in the form of the adidas ZX 2K Boost.

The springy midsole and semi-translucent accents add a bold edge to your look, so you can walk confidently into the future.
