UPDATE: These adidas ZX Flux Xs are a triumph of subdued tones. They're low-key, high class and available now from Titolo.
The new adidas ZX Flux ADV X is an exercise in unadulterated minimalism. The initial drop will see a trio of colourways for the streamline silhouette; an all black and an all white mesh version, plus our favourite by far – the grey suede. The outer side of the shoe shows nothing more than the simple lacing system and taped heel cap. From the inside you can see a small patch of peroration on the toe, while the taping across the heel reads ‘ZX FLUX’ and then lists the shoe's style code. The slick midsole possesses a couple of jagged shapes under the heel, so it doesn’t stand out against the rest.
