Last week saw the opening of adidas’ ‘ZX – Roots of Running’ Exhibition in London’s Covent Garden, a 10 day event showcasing some of the best and most iconic trainers from the brand’s ZX series. Originally designed in 1984 to suit all runner’s needs, the ZX has since created a legacy very much deserving of an exhibition. From road and marathon runners, to trials runners, joggers and casuals, the series was built to suit everyone’s needs.
Curated by Gary Aspden, Mike Chetcuti and co, the exhibition features some of the most iconic ZX models, as well as some of what’s still to come from the ZX family.
The exhibition is completely free of charge and is running until 2 December. You’ll find it at 21-23 Earlham St, London, WC2H 9LL, from 12pm to 8pm every day.
There’s also a limited edition, hardback book for sale exclusively at the exhibition that features 132 pages of ZX history, with all proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
