Adidas ZX 750: running shoe featuring TPU heel clip

The Adidas ZX 750 is a running shoe that was released between 1986-1988. The ZX 750 replaced the ZX 700 (available in 1985); the first ZX shoes released in the ZX Series were the ZX 400 and ZX 500 (launched in 1984). The ZX Series was the most important range of Adidas running shoes in the 1980's; the ZX Series were primarily designed for medium and long distance running, and the ZX 8000 helped professional runners set new marathon records in the late 1980's.

The ZX 750 retains a similar cosmetic design to the ZX 700 and ZX 500, and it's list of features is similar: textile inner lining; mesh upper with suede overlays; TPU heel clip; TPU eyelets (near tongue); ZX text near the heel; trefoil logo on the tongue; injected EVA midsole; and 'grippy' rubber outsole. Unlike the ZX 500 and ZX 700, the ZX 750 has text - placed near the heel - to identify the shoe; a rough estimate is that half of Adidas' shoes have identification text placed near the heel and half do not.
