Professional gamer Tyler Belvins, also known as Ninja, teams up with adidas for a new “Time In” Collection. This series is an expansion of Ninja’s partnership with adidas. His past collabs have featured Nite Joggers, ZX Torsions, and the ZX 2K Boosts. This time around, Ninja levels up from the ZX 2K Boosts, as this collection uses the new adidas ZX 2K 2.0.
The upper of the adidas ZX 2K 2.0 is slightly unconventional as the base is made with neoprene wrapped in TPU. The tongue uses mesh to provide breathability and softness that compliments the comfort of the Boost cushion sole. Coming in three different colorways, the collection has themes of blue, a nod to Ninja’s signature hair color. The white and grey pairs feature a pixelated digi-print that blurs behind the TPU, creating the ultimate cyber illusion.
The collection also features two colorways of the classic adidas Adilette Slide. One pair features a two-toned blue design that is embossed with the adidas Three-Stripes in monochromatic pixels. If you look closely, you’ll also notice that this pair features “In Time” slyly imprinted on the side of the slide’s upper. To correspond with the sneakers, the additional pair of Adilette Slides come dressed in the pixelated digi-print and wrapped in TPU with the adidas Three-Stripes to finish.
The Ninja x adidas “Time In” Collection will be available to purchase August 31, 2021 on adidas.com. The ZX 2K 2.0s are $150 and the Adilette Slides are $80. For more adidas releases and updates on all your favorite sneakers, follow @NiceKicks on Twitter.
