“​We all had import tuner cars, like ridiculous Honda ’97 Civic DXs with a spoiler,” ​says Metropolitan founders Keith Hufnagel and Hanni El Khatib. “We both had a ’97 Integra with blacked-out lenses and stuff. That’s the vibe and a treasure chest of design inspiration​. ​All of this sparked from these Japanese import illegal drift racing videos, pre Fast & Furious in the mid ‘90s. They feel underground and illegal, which they were.”​

The blacked out adidas ZX8000 pays homage to clandestine late night races with accent colors inspired by the lights and paint jobs on those cars. Check it:
