adidas has a rich history of collaboration, and one of its notable partnerships was with the NBA star Gilbert Arenas. The original Gil Zero silhouette became an instant hit upon its debut, standing as a testament to Arenas' prowess on the court and adidas' innovative approach to design. As we've seen adidas delving deep into its archives to refresh classics, it brings us the adidas Gil Zero Restomod Hurricane, a revamped version of this iconic shoe. While the Restomod iteration might wear its classic roots on its sleeve, it doesn’t shy away from incorporating state-of-the-art sneaker tech, ensuring wearers get a mix of the old and new.
Diving into the design specifics of the "Hurricane" colorway, one can't help but be reminded of vintage LA bowling alleys characterized by their vibrant pastel shades. The sneaker's upper tantalizingly blends creamy whites with mellow shades of mint green, soft blue, pastel pink, and yellow. This colorful canvas is crafted from perforated leather on the base layer and tongue, which beautifully offsets the minty green splashed on the vamp, midfoot panel, and tongue tag. Pink overlays provide added contrast, and the heel doesn't hold back on flair with a patent leather base adorned by a multi-colored star graphic. Not to be left behind, the sole unit showcases Boost technology housed within a white foam midsole, while the gum rubber outsole flaunts creamy sections near the heel.
The adidas Gil Zero Restomod Hurricane will release Holiday 2023 through adidas and select retailers online and in-store. Available in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $140.
