Adidas ZX700 trainers in a retro brown, blue, and white colour way. One of the more vintage looking pairs. This pair also have a lower gum sole. These are great trainers. All of the Adidas ZX series like the ZX700, 750, 850, 900, 5000, 8000 etc are classic, well made Adidas that work great as a trendy, retro style, everyday wear shoe. As well as for sports related activities. They have been written about many times on this website. There are so many different variations of Adidas ZX, as well as a huge range of different colour combinations. Check the Price of the brown pair below.
The total sole of this pair is not gum, just the lower layer as can be seen in the pictures. Although a lot of people are looking for a pair of this particular style of Adidas ZX that have a full gum sole. This is the closest you will get with a pair of these trainers as far as a gum sole is concerned. I don’t think this style of Adidas ZX have ever been made with a full gum sole.
If you look at the close up picture above , the gum sole closely matches the brown of the trainers. This is sometimes what Adidas do, colour code certain pairs of Adidas ZX. For example, If you look at a pair that has green colouring where this pair has brown, the lower layer of the sole is sometimes green. Saying that, colour coded pairs are harder to come by, so most pairs will have a black lower sole.
Not sure if Adidas ZX of this style come in full brown, but if they do then maybe you could find a pair with an almost full, matching gum sole. Never seen a pair for sale though so far, so they must be quite rare. Be aware, if a pair with a full gum sole were available they would lose a lot of their cushioning.
Some of the ZX casual range do have a full gum sole, but they look nothing like the pair pictured here, and they are not very retro looking either if that’s the type of style you are interested in buying. If so, and you’re not bothered about a gum sole, check out some of the Adidas ZX100 models.
