Adidas Retro vs. Marble part 2

Screen shot 2014-02-27 at 15.40.20

From the second part of our exclusive collaboration with adidas, the Retro vs. Marble pack, we can exclusively reveal the next focus model, the ZX5000.

The first exclusive colourway is a retro classic in light aqua, infra red and sun yellow, a nod to the colours we saw back in the day.


The second features panels of our unique marble effect amongst a dark indigo blue and pop pink colour palette. Both styles have a classic ZX5000 make up of suede and engineered mesh with 3M reflective details and a neoprene sock.


First released in 1989, the adidas ZX 5000 represented running shoe perfection. It was sold as a simpler model that focused on superior cushioning for middle to long distance runners. The incorporated TORSION bar allowed the foot flexibility and provided support and stability.

Throughout the ZX Series’ history, few shoes pushed forward to the future like the ZX 5000. Following the groundwork laid by models before it, this iconic shoe blends crucial elements of the ZX Series into a brand new design, culminating into a true symbol of performance footwear. A lightweight runner with a focus on comfort the adidas Torsion system allows free independent movement of the forefoot and heel.

Available in all Offspring stores and online here from Friday the 28th of February

Adidas S-M-L

From adidas’ premium Originals Blue label come the S-M-L (small-medium-large), a unique concept shoe, designed to address the needs of style-oriented frequent travellers. Originally seen briefly within adidas‘ Y-3 and SLVR collections, this technically brilliant shoe offers blissful comfort.


The primary goal with the S-M-L was to engineer a no fuss shoe that delivered a level of cushioning and support during light activity, flexibility, stretch and something ultimately light in weight. Coming in just 3 sizes, the shoe is designed to stretch across a size range, Small (3.5-5.5 UK), Medium (6-7.5 UK) and Large (8-9.5 UK), offering a snug and almost barefoot like experience.

Combining a 80´s running inspired upper with the modern S-M-L tooling , S-M-L original´s creates a unique new look that offers ultimate style and comfort. The “cage-like” outer layer features a stretchy synthetic leather and mesh upper in vibrant neon colours to provides support to the foot and the under layer is crafted from 4-way stretch mesh for a sock like fit allowing the shoe to stretch accordingly. To finish the outsole is engineered using EVA in two seperate high contact areas for traction and durability, allowing the shoe to expand and contract according to the wearer.

Nike Roshe Run – Tye Die

The Nike Roshe Run is rapidly becoming a staple basic in the Nike family and with
their array of fresh and exciting colour ways they are well on their way to becoming
a classic. It would seem the possibilities are endless in terms of colour combinations
and patterns that can be added to this minimalist silhouette. This experimentation
with colour is evident with the exciting release of the ‘Tie Dye’ model.


Inspired by the practice of meditation and the concept of Zen, the NikeRoshe Run
epitomises simplicity. It has no embellishments, just basic shoe necessities brought
to life with every detail. Almost every part of the shoe reflects an aspect of a tranquil
Zen garden, a modified Waffle outsole made to look like stepping stones, an insole
that mirrors a raked rock garden and slightly different midsole side lengths which
echoes a juxtaposition of seriousness and playfulness.


This limited colour way is dipped in all colours of the rainbow with pink, blue, orange and
yellow hues splashed over a canvas based upper. Crisp white laces, Swoosh and
EVA midsole add some contrast to this vibrant Roshe Run.


The result of this multicoloured tie dye design is an eye catching yet simple style,
ideal for summer and those who love making a bit of a statement with their footwear.
