Adidas ZX 2K 4D “Heatmap”

Coming soon

While there suddenly seems to be a number of different versions of the iconic 4D shoe on the market, we’re most excited about this one because, well, just look at the thing. The orange and yellow heatmap gradient colourway has called it right, because, ladies and gentleman, this thing is hot *sizzle sound.
