One-of-One adidas ZX 8000 ‘Porcelain’ Expected to Fetch $1 Million at Auction

Famed porcelain maker Meissen have teamed with adidas to create a special one-of-a-kind ZX 8000 collaboration. Featuring hand-painted leather and porcelain overlays, the sneaker will go up for auction courtesy of Sotheby’s, and is expected to fetch up to $1 million.

All proceeds from the auction will be given to the Brooklyn Museum, with the goal of funding art programming for local youth.

The sneaker represents the first-ever collaboration between the two brands. Assembled over a six-month period, the ZX 8000 ‘Porcelain’ is dressed with premium leather, hand-painted by Meissen. Additionally, there’s hand-made Meissen porcelain overlays contributing to the sneaker’s overall weight of 950 grams.

‘Meissen carries so much heritage and know-how, inspiring collectors around the world,’ says adidas Till Jagla. ‘The manufacturing process to create the first porcelain sneaker ever has been very complex, and took us more than a year to finish the product. The team has been obsessed with creating the perfect piece of art. When I think about this project, what I liked most is the love, the passion and the dedication, which have led to an overwhelming result.’

The Meissen x adidas ZX 8000 ‘Porcelain’ will be up for bidding from December 7 through December 16 via Sotheby’s auction page. At present, the one-of-one sneaker is on display at Sotheby’s New York The Festival of Wonder exhibition.
