From the ground up

This past season, adidas Originals introduced the reincarnation of an icon in the form of the ZX Flux. Born from ZX 8000 running heritage, the shoe is informed by its predecessor’s larger-than-life attitude, built on the Torsion tooling and retaining the much-loved heel cage. With its minimal upper construction and fast toe-down shape, what the ZX Flux brings is a stripped back silhouette that offers a blank canvas for versatile treatments, both graphically and materially. A technical feel comes across in the ZX Flux’s “Base Tone” pack attributed to its two-tone mesh upper and welded TPU 3-Stripes execution. The color blocking on the midsole harks back to the ZX 8000 trainer on which the ZX Flux is based; this is the first time the iconic blocking joins the rollout of the ZX Flux series. A simple color palette is used throughout with the option of bright red or cobalt blue on a black and white midsole. The Fall/Winter 2014 ZX Flux “Base Tone” pack is now available at select adidas retailers.
