Even if you're not a fan of soccer, you've probably heard of Arsenal Football Club. Founded over a century ago, the club has won 13 league titles, 14 FA Cups, two League Cups, 16 FA Community Shields, one European Cup Winners' Cup, and one Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, and is home to some of the most iconic football players of all time, including Ian Wright and David Rocastle. To celebrate over 30 years since they first played together for the Gunners, adidas has unleashed the special edition Arsenal x adidas ZX 420 "Honor Oak" that's named after the London neighborhood in which both legends grew up.
Building on the ZX 420 silhouette, the "Honor Oak" is painted in a black, red, and green color scheme which pays tribute to the players' Caribbean heritage. Crafted from a mixture of denim canvas and corduroy, Arsenal's cannon crest is embroidered onto the heels, while the Jamaican and Trinidad and Tobago flags feature around the back of the tongues, alongside "Wrighty" and "Rocky" and "28.09.91" which is the date that they both played together for the first time in the league. Down below, the three-layered EVA midsole offers an unrivaled amount of comfort, and it's finished off with a rubber outsole that keeps in line with the theme of the sneaker.
Whether or not you're a fan of Arsenal F.C., the Arsenal x adidas ZX 420 Honor Oak is still a must-own colorway. Releasing on October 25th, 2022, it'll be available in men's sizes for $100 at adidas and select online and in-store retailers worldwide.
