Share This Page: adidas ZX Flux A sneaker 25 years in the making, the adidas ZX Flux has it all, heritage, comfort, and versatility. With this kind of pedigree, everyone should have a few of this silhouette in their rotation. In the mid-80s, “athletic” and “stylish” weren’t two words you’d use to describe trainers. Adidas saw this gap and created the ZX series, a trainer that can keep up with your routine and look good doing it. These kicks brought about industry-wide change by introducing training sneakers with a great deal more style than anything on the market. By adding fashion elements to their sneakers, adidas ensured people would wear the ZX series with their everyday fit. Twenty-five years later the series has shown its staying power and exemplifies this with the newest model: the ZX Flux. The design team at adidas specifically looked at the ZX 8000 runner, when contemplating the ZX Flux. They deconstructed the older silhouette with the idea to create a minimalist, stylish sneaker for today’s fashion oriented sneaker lovers. Most of the overlays and support to the upper and toe box have been stripped away, and the only technological elements left are the heel cage and the Torsion bar. The style of the ZX Flux has seen many different hues and prints, but the construction has remained relatively the same. Inspired by the ZX 8000, the ZX Flux features a mesh, one piece upper, and a molded midsole. While the original release had a mess upper, adidas has since incorporated several different materials into the upper such as, neoprene, graphic prints, and woven uppers. The heel cage on the back adds stability to the breathable upper, and the Torsion system provides midfoot integrity. A rubber outsole caps off the look and feel of these kicks, while providing the traction you need on and off the track. Versatility was built into this sneaker from day one. You could grab a pair rocking a vivid graphic print for a day out with your friends, or you could dress up in an all-white or all-black pair for dinner with bae. Aside from events and dates, the ZX Flux is a great sneaker to wear to the gym or slip a pair on for a walk. With trend sitters like Kanye West and Big Sean rocking these runners, the ZX Flux is a must have for your sneaker collection.
