Per Adidas:

With the midsole being produced in adidas’ almost entirely automated factory in Ansbach, Germany, the ZX 4000 4D model is the product of the most automated shoe factory in the world, manufactured in an environment with virtually no heat, light, or human manpower. The shoe’s black and grey color scale reflects this, utilizing colors from the cold temperature spectrum of the Kelvin scale, while material elements, such as Primeknit upper with nubuck overlays and the shoe’s unmissable 4D midsole unit, emphasize the shoe’s futuristic edge.

Contrasting with this, the ZX 500 RM model is manufactured almost entirely by hand in one of adidas’ Asian factories, reflecting this with the Kelvin scale’s warm temperature hues of brown and taupe.

The kicks feature a combination of OG mesh, nubuck and premium leathers on the upper nods to the classic construction of archive adidas models, rounded off with a full leather lining. This is then placed atop a Boost midsole, completing the ZX 500 RM model’s fluid blend of classic design and contemporary tech.
