Level-Up Your Game with the adidas X9000 Lineup
In many ways, adidas’ contemporary sneaker stable has been built on the foundations laid by BOOST. Since debuting in 2013, the revolutionary energy-returning foam has established itself as one of the defining sneaker technologies of the decade, transcending its pavement pounding origins to become the marquee cushioning choice in the brand’s lifestyle lineup. Legendary silhouettes like the UltraBOOST and NMD remain torchbearers for the tech, and now adidas are set to take the concept into the future, introducing the gamer-inspired X9000 series.
Inspired by the fast pace and high energy of our hyperconnected world, Team Trefoil introduce an ultramodern trio of performance runners, blessed with bold visuals and data-inspired outsoles designed to tackle city streets.
Time to level-up your sneaker game!
Plug into the mainframe with the eye-catching X9000L4, which arrives with a breathable mesh upper highlighted with distinctive floating triangles and supportive underlays. Extra stability is provided by the heel counter, while contrasting Three Stripes branding is layered over the lateral side for a clean, modern look.
The advancements trickle down to the sole unit, where the BOOST midsole has been constructed in sections, opening up the possibility for countless colour combinations. Additionally, the tread pattern on the outsole is inspired by computer-generated data, delivering an extra grippy feel with each stride.
As endorsees like Ninja bring sneaker culture closer to video gamers, the X9000L3 arrives to further level-up adidas’ foray into eSports. Blending aspects of the virtual and real world, this lightweight option from the X9000 lineup comes equipped with a high-tech look and design.
Responsive BOOST is found in the forefoot, with lightweight rubber cushioning in the heel combining for a smooth and cosy ride. Dialling down the upper of the L4, the L3 features a smaller heel support system, achieving a nimbler look and feel.
Finally, building on the BOOST-infused L3 and L4, the X90004D adds another dimension to the mix, elevating the electronic theme with a digitally-printed midsole. The game-changing 4D is precision crafted with light, oxygen and liquid resin for controlled energy return, complemented by the aforementioned data-inspired rubber outsole.
Additionally, the futuristic upper is a nod to the fan-favourite UltraBOOST 1.0, constructed with stretchy yet supportive Primeknit in a classic knit pattern. Whether you’re running or gaming with friends, the X90004D is equipped with the upgrades to help you one-up the competition.
