Adidas retro kicks come with a retro game


Now here's a shoe-in for the list of the year's best gaming-related clothing: Adidas has brought back its ZX 500 running shoe, and, since it originally hails from the '80s, the gaming inspired design and coloring is a no-brainer ... right? The kicks may not be the coolest part of the deal, either; they come packaged with a combination bracelet/USB flashdrive containing ZX Runner, a PC game based on ... the shoe itself.

GameCulture writes that the game stars a character named "DJ Zed" who, according to Adidas, has five minutes to "run, moon-walk, climb walls, avoid some dodgy-looking thugs, collect power-ups, and pull off insane rooftop-to-rooftop stunts" in order to get on-stage before his set starts. It looks fittingly retro -- see for yourself in the video we've included after the breakdance.
