adidas Originals will reference their German heritage with the new 'Fall of the Wall' pack of ZX 8000s.

The reference results not only in some of the more flavorful adidas retro runners from the inline team that we've ever seen, but also in a pretty interesting detail on the production end - these were made in Germany. The three entries in the group nod to different military checkpoints that provided passage from East Germany to West Germany - Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie. If you're missing the connection here, do keep in mind that 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall. See imagery on each pair below and watch for the adidas Originals 'Fall of the Wall' Pack to release on November 8th, 2014.
