adidas Originals continues their focus on the legendary ZX line and have teamed up with lifestyle boutique Commonwealth to collaborate on the ZX 500 RM silhouette. With recently opened locations in Los Angeles and the Philippines, Commonwealth is no stranger to coastal traditions and living.
Since first opening in 2004, Commonwealth has established itself as a major specialty boutique that’s become globally recognised as a leading name in streetwear, style and culture. After opening their first location in the Philippines in 2015, they've successfully expanded into two more locations. Considered a true cultural hub in Manilla, the country’s capital, Commonwealth design pays homage to their city with this new collaboration.
Given the collaboration is inspired by the coastal living of Virginia Beach, Los Angeles and the Philippines, it explores elements of translucency and fluidity. The upper takes on an aquatic theme, is constructed from a synthetic suede with translucent monofilament mesh underlays as well as TPU welded overlays for structure. It also comes with embroidered three stripe marks and a palette of soft, aquatic colours for the heel details.
The revamped upper is placed on a Boost midsole for maximum cushioning and includes a durable clear rubber outsole. The collaboration is finished off with co-branding on the insoles, Consortium tags on each tongue as well as a Commonwealth woven label on the lateral ankle.
The Good Life will release the adidas Consortium x Commonwealth ZX 500 RM in-store on a first come, first served basis at 10:00 am GST on Saturday December 15th.
