Originally released in white, the ZX Flux Xeno is dropping in all-black finish. The ZX family has been around since the mid-80s, and during that time the ZX series was the pinnacle of trainers. 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 ensemble. The design team at adidas specifically looked at the ZX 8000 runner, when constructing 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. 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. The upper of the ZX Flux Xeno has solid, matte-black, sleek look. However, when light hits this sneaker, it explodes into a myriad of colors, and it is reminiscent of a rainbow. In accordance with the tonal black theme, these kicks sit on a black sole. The adidas ZX Flux Xeno is available online and in stores. They retail for $120 in Men’s and $90 for grade schoolers’. Air Jordan 1 Retro High The Return “Gorge Green” During the 1985/1986 season, Michael Jordan suffered a foot injury, but he was back in time for the push to the playoffs. MJ had trouble deciding what shoe to ball in, because the AJ 2 offered more cushion and support, but the AJ 1 was the sneaker he favored. To avoid having Jordan make a decision, Nike created the Air Jordan 1 High The Return. This silhouette sported the upper of the AJ 1 which sat on the sole of the AJ 2. This retro release comes dressed in Sand Dune tan suede and Gorge Green leather. The Nike Air and Air Jordan branding are red. The AJ 1 upper sits on the AJ 2 white midsole and gum outsole giving it the Air Jordan 1.5 look. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High The Return “Gorge Green” will be available Saturday, Dec. 12th, in stores only, so check Where to Cop for the list of stores. These kicks will be in Men’s for $150. Air Jordan XI “72-10” The Air Jordan XI helped MJ and the Bulls pull-off the record-breaking 72-win championship 1995-1996 season. This was the first season that brought Dennis Rodman together with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. The Chicago Bulls became the only team to ever win 70 or more regular season games, and they easily won their division, conference, and the NBA Finals. The '95-'96 season has not been matched by any team since. “The greatest season of all time” carries with it the weight of the entire history of basketball. With 72 wins and 10 loses, it’s almost impossible not to give that nod to the '95-'96 Chicago Bulls fronted by the GOAT, Michael Jordan. During that season, Jordan wore his 11th silhouette from Nike. To honor that historic season, the man, and the sneaker, the Jordan Brand delivers the Air Jordan XI "72-10”. These beauties pair premium, tumbled leather with microfiber suede for an elegant look worthy of a legendary season. This is an upgrade from the usual upper of the AJ XI, which typically has a cloth upper. Tumbled patent leather wraps the sneaker, and features an iridescent sheen. The classic, black upper is accented with red Jumpman branding, and the tag inside the tongue reads, “72-10 QUALITY INSPIRED BY THE GREATEST SEASON LED BY THE GREATEST PLAYER EVER.” The carbon fiber plate in the midfoot is checkered black and red, and the black upper sits atop a white midsole and clear outsole. The Air Jordan XI “72-10” will be available on Saturday, Dec. 12th, in stores only, check out Where to Cop for details. They will be in Men’s for $220, grade schoolers’ for $180, preschoolers’ for $90, toddlers’ for $70, crib shoes for $50. Grab a pair of these timeless kicks to celebrate the epic 72-10 season.
