Who should NOT buy it

If you're a buyer who prefers kicks that feel instantly comfortable straight from the box, the ZX 750 might not be the one for you. This sneaker feels stiff at first compared to other running sneaker releases of Adidas. If you prefer a soft, pillowy ride on day one, better check out the ZX 2K Boost from the Adidas Boost series

Adidas ZX 750: A promising mix of fashion and functionality

The stylish silhouette and color palette of the Adidas ZX 750 is its main catch. With the massive popularity of running sneakers from the 1980s, its street-ready silhouette is ready to complement any outfit and fashion taste. From sporty to casual style, the sneaker does not disappoint its loyal followers through the years.

A modernized classic running footwear

Releasing in multi-color versions, the retro running footwear uses mesh upper and synthetic overlays with various tonal accents in the heel cage or stripes. The latest version of the Adidas ZX 750 uses only modern materials to the timeless model with an engineered woven mesh upper, a TPU heel clip, and welded Three-stripes adding sophistication to its wearers.

Breathability at its finest

The well-ventilated mesh upper of the Adidas ZX 750 shoes combines synthetic leather overlays. Some customers note the breathable mesh upper felt airy as the material allows airflow around the shoe better than the perforations in previous iterations.

The Adidas ZX series' history

The 1980s was a productive year for Adidas when it released the ZX runner shoes in 1984. The ZX runner series by Adidas Originals featured several shoe designs from performance running, all-terrain, distance running, and recreational running shoe designs.

Adidas ZX 750 history

Among the pioneering designs include the ZX 500 that kicked off the ZX line of runners. Other models followed include the Adidas ZX 700, which featured almost the same silhouette.

The ZX 700 was designed for high-mileage running enthusiasts wanting a durable outsole and high-performance midsole with a heel cage for support and motion control. The suede, leather, and nylon combination covering the upper, which is popular among many runners, is breathable and lightweight.
