Adidas Goes Green With New Kawasaki Ninja-Themed Shoe Collection


A sneak peek of the new Ninja Collection from the Adidas X Kawasaki Collaboration

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.
