Adidas Originals' Winter-Ready Shield Trainers


Snow and his chilly companion Frost are on the way. It's official. The Met Office said so. Which makes the arrival of adidas Originals' Winter Shield Pack most timely. 

Wrapped up in ballistic mesh, a hardy plastic TPU cage and a waterproof GORE-TEX lining, the cold-weather redesigns of the ZX 8000 and ZX Tac hiking boot manage to balance that tricky act of being both practical and looking a cut above the usual shoe.


Enhanced for potentially icy conditions, the ZX 8000 features an extra grippy rubber outsole, with two minimalist colourways offering the shoe in all black or all white. 


If you're looking for something hardier still, the half-trainer, half-boot ZX Tac comes in a dirt-avoiding black or seasonal wheat colour.

Both shoes will arrive on adidas' online store on 13 December - just in time for the snow.
