Images of a glow in the dark atmos designed adidas ZX 8000 has been making its rounds on the internet lately, set to release in limited quantities this weekend. But that is hardly the first time atmos has created a glowing ZX 8000 with the last version releasing a couple of years back. The atmos x adidas ZX 8000 G-SNK 2 was appropriately named as it was the second ZX 8000 the Japanese brand created with the three stripes. The look and build is one that would fit in with the releases of the current year thanks to its snakeskin details.

The design of the sneaker was a pretty simple affair nearly mimicking the pairings first ZX 8000 build but this time the look was far more subdued in comparison thanks to the neutral palette. The colors used on the ZX 8000 were nothing out of the ordinary as black paneling was used as the base of the upper. Silver snakeskin embossed panels stood out from the black body, especially when the lights went out and the glow in the dark pattern appeared. Boldly contrasting against the black and glowing snakeskin were the three stripes in white matching the sole of the sneaker.
The upcoming third ZX 8000 from atmos and adidas doesn’t look to have the same formula as the first two, changing where the glow in the dark panels are and no snakeskin. Regardless having any three versions in your possession is a fine addition to any collection.
