Adidas Goes Green With New Kawasaki Ninja-Themed Shoe Collection
Kawasaki has just teamed up with Adidas to create some lean, mean, green shoes based on their Ninja line – and I want them reinforced for riding.
As a green girl, I’m as much a fan of playing matchy-matchy with motorcycle gear as the next. But quality counts in a world of risks, and good motorcycle shoes are built for riding – not the streets.
So why not have a pair of slips for those Clark Kent-esque days when you’re out and about on the mundane tasks of the day?
SneakerBarDetroit tells us that the upcoming Adidas X Kawasaki collection will feature two units – takes on their ZX 8000 and ZX 5K Boost – which will show off themed inspo from Kawasaki’s classic Ninja ZX-7R and the newer 2021 Ninja ZX-10R.
Naturally, the ZX-7R-themed ZX 8000 sneakers will sport a white, green, and blue color scheme; a leather number with a black sole, and a more Y2K-inclined style, to match the bike’s year range (1989-2003).
By contrast, the ZX 5K Boost shoes are darker, with a black and green makeover for Kawi’s ZX-10R in ‘flat ebony’, the obligatory “Ninja” very nicely sprawled onto the lateral forefoot, and a chrome cast set atop the metallic heel counter.
The report states that we’ve got a few short weeks until these digs become available at select retailers and Adidas’s official website, so we’ll update as the news hits the press.
Let us know if you end up getting your hands on a pair of these beauties, and as always, stay safe on the twisties.
