Initial Design Of The Adidas ZoneBoost

Footwear Design Director of Advanced Concepts, Jean Khalifé recently shared an insight into the creation of the 90’s inspired adidas ZoneBoost.

“If the #marqueeboost was a tribute to #adidas amazing 80’s #basketball legacy, this new chapter with the #zoneboost is all about the 90’s golden era. This is certainly one of the most enjoyable project I had to design.” – Khalifé

He also went on to thank his team at the Brooklyn Creator Farm – “I wanted to thank @heybz for her precious help and knowledges, @mo_fizzle, @mbroidered for their insights. Also thanks @marcdolce for giving me the opportunity to have a blast with this project. Big credit to the legendary factory who made this shoe happen.
#bornfrombrooklyn” – Khalifé
