adidas Originals and adidas Consortium is paying homage to the 30th anniversary of its Torsion System technology with a pack of ZX sneakers.

The silhouettes selected for this special occasion include the ZX 5000, ZX 6000, ZX 7000 and ZX 9000. Each one will release on a different day but all have the common thread of being the first series of sneakers to use Torsion over 30 years ago. Original colorways and materials are used on the pack and all feature the TPU arch that bridges the forefoot and heel which has made Torsion last so long.

For the campaign, adidas tapped the archives and drew inspiration from the '80s "I want, I can" campaign. Drive and desire are highlighted through functionality and craftsmanship.

You can purchase all four sneakers throughout the month of August during the release dates below. adidas fans can also check out the newly announced YEEZY 500 "Bone White" coming at the end of the month.

8/17/19 (Saturday) - ZX 6000
