After the initial release of the ‘Black Elements’ pack a short while ago, adidas are set to roll out their new ZX Flux this weekend in a trio of packs, the third of which being the minimal ‘Weave’ Pack.
The ZX Flux is the first new shoe to really grab my attention in some time. I love my classics and it takes a lot to sway me on to a new way of thinking, but there’s something about the Flux that really has me. The shoe itself is based on the brand’s legendary ZX 8000, honouring the shoe’s 25th anniversary with a new, streamlined silhouette. The primary elements of the ZX 8000 remain in the heel cage, Torsion sole and iconic three stripes, but the rest has been completely stripped away creating a completely fresh and contemporary evolution of the ZX range.
The Weave pack takes a more subdued approach than many of the other models in this weekend’s trio of releases, with the focus being on the woven upper and complimenting suede coated heel cage. The ZX Flux Weave also features the three stripe branding woven into the sides, rather than the rubberised plastic stripes found on the other releases. These tweaks give the pack a completely different feel in three colours of Glow Coral, Wonder Mint and Running White, each with a contrasting coloured set of laces.
The adidas Originals ZX Flux ‘Weave’ Pack releases tomorrow, March 29th at adidas and select stockists nationwide priced at £80 – along with the Base and Photo Print packs. Take a look at all three styles here, you can also enter to win yourself a pair in the ZX Stories competition here.
