adidas TERREX athletes embrace Hong Kong culture
by dyeing their white Zero Dye trail running kit indigo blue
The Zero Dye design concept to was taken to a new level by a team of professional adidas TERREX trail runners, in Hong Kong to race the Vibram Hong Kong 100 Ultra Trail Race (HK100, January 2019), by dyeing their naturally white kit indigo blue; the colour synonymous with the region.
The Zero Dye trail running pack from adidas TERREX is a concept that flips conventional footwear on its head, using materials in their natural colour state to save natural resources. That means every shoe is waiting for runners to write their story as they run; every mark is a chapter, every stain and mud-splat a subplot in unique off-road adventures.  
Hong Kong has long been obsessed with the colour blue, dating back to the 19th century when indigo dyeing workshops across the city catered for the raging craze for blue fashion. This history and culture presented an opportunity for the brand and the athletes – including 2018 Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB) champion, Tom Evans - to unleash their imagination and creativity, by personalising their running kit with a natural indigo dye.
“Skipping the dyeing process in manufacturing is not only a creative decision, it also saves resources in the production process by using materials in their natural colours, bringing a new element of sustainability to technical clothing design” explains adidas designer, Jessica Goddard.
So, when the athletes signed-up to compete in the HK100, transforming their white kit with nature blue dye become the perfect opportunity to mark the occasion in a distinctive way.
“Most shoes tell a story about the manufacturer. Silhouettes are created by a designer, not a wearer. Colours are decided by a creative team, not an athlete. Being in Hong Kong with these runners and utilising the Zero Dye products was a great way to turn the tables.”
Congratulations for strong performances from the whole team representing adidas TERREX in the HK100, including Lu Yangchun as 1st female to cross the line, and being one of three team runners enjoying a top 10 female finisher result.
