They are more than just a clean pair of kicks

In time for the holidays, Commonwealth got fellow sneakerheads abuzz when they announced their collaboration with adidas through the sneaker brand’s Consortium program. This weekend, Commonwealth made their collaboration pair of the ZX 500 RM available to the public. If you have yet copped a pair, here are a few reasons why they should be part of your rotation:


It is the first collaboration between adidas and Commonwealth

adidas is known for its Consortium collabs with retailers and streetwear brands, and teaming up with Commonwealth solidifies the boutique’s reputation. While it is their first collab, the guys at Commonwealth worked hard for years like it is their first and last collab with adidas. The result? A clean reimagination of the legacy ZX 500 silhouette, updated with Boost tech.


It has a compelling design inspiration

In Carlo’s chat with Omar Quiambao, he shared that their design inspiration is tropical living, giving reference to Commonwealth’s stores in Virginia, Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Manila. As for the color accents (in the stripes, heel tab, and the laces that go with the pair), they have drawn inspiration from the Tubbataha Reef–a protected marine area along Sulu sea that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
