This Hand-Painted Meissen x Adidas ZX8000 Porcelain Sneaker Belongs in a Museum

Porcelain isn’t just for tableware—the ceramic material can be used for sneakers, too. Adidas recently collaborated with German porcelain design house Meissen to create a hand-painted ZX8000 running shoe made from leather and ceramics. The gorgeous, ZX8000 Porcelain is inspired by the opulent Meissen Krater Vase, a historic ceramic piece designed by Ernst August Leuteritz in 1856.


 

 

1년 넘게 걸려 만든 아디다스 신발


  도자기 신발은 아디다스 A-ZX 시리즈의 일부분으로 아티스트와 디자이너가 협업해 만든 ZX8000을 재해석한 컬렉션이다. 메이슨의 신발은 운동화 혓바닥과 발뒤꿈치 카운터에 진짜 도자기 조각을 꿰매어 놓은 등 특히 정교하다. 




꽃병의 130여 가지 무늬 중 화려한 꽃무늬와 용 모티브를 포함한 15가지 무늬가 특징이다. 고도의 기술을 갖춘 메이센 화가 4명으로 구성된 팀이 수작업으로 그렸으나, 재능 있는 장인들의 손에서도 구두를 완성하는데 6개월이 걸렸다.


아디다스 글로벌 에너지 책임자인 틸 자글라는 "제조 공정이 매우 복잡해 제품을 완성하는 데 1년 이상이 걸렸다"고 말한다. "그 팀은 완벽한 물체를 창조하는 데 집착해 왔다. 이 프로젝트를 생각해보면 사실 내가 가장 좋아했던 것이 바로 사랑, 열정, 헌신이 압도적 결과로 이어진 것이다."


메이센 화가들은 더욱 새롭고 도전적인 소재로 작업하고 있었기 때문에 디테일에 특히 신경을 써야 했다. 메이센의 틸만 블라스치케 박사는 색상이 가죽에 바로 스며들어 교정이 불가능하기 때문에 실수가 허용되지 않아 특히 어려웠다고 설명했다.

The porcelain shoe is part of the adidas A-ZX series, a collection of reinterpreted ZX8000s made in collaboration with artists and designers. Meissen’s shoe is particularly elaborate, with real porcelain pieces stitched onto the sneaker’s tongue and heel counter. It features 15 of the vase’s 130 different patterns, including colorful floral designs and dragon motifs. Each element was hand-painted by a team of four highly skilled Meissen painters, but even in the hands of the talented artisans, the shoe took six months to complete.




“The manufacturing process has been very complex and took us more than a year to finish the product,” says Till Jagla, adidas Global Head of Energy. “The team has been obsessed to create the perfect object. When I think about this project, this is actually what I liked the most: the love, the passion and the dedication, which have led to an overwhelming result.”


The Meissen painters had to pay particular attention to detail, as they were working with a new, more challenging material. Dr. Tillmann Blaschke CEO of Meissen explains, “[It] was especially challenging as no mistakes are allowed due to the fact that the colors immediately are soaked up by the leather so no corrections are possible.”


The ZX8000 Porcelain is a one-of-a-kind art piece, and is currently being auctioned off via Sotheby’s. With less than seven days left to make a bid, it’s currently sitting at $6,500, however, it’s estimated to reach up to $1,000,000. The final sale amount will be donated to the Brooklyn Museum to support access to arts education for youth in NYC. And while you might not be able to afford the original, adidas is currently designing a wearable ZX8000 Porcelain shoe directly inspired by the art piece. It will be available for purchase from December 11, 2020.
