Good to know

The Adidas ZX Flux ADV Verve is exclusively available in women’s sizes from 3.5 to 11 US in medium width. This pair runs true to size, yet it has tad narrow width. Thus, many wearers suggested grabbing a half size up for a more comfortable fit. It has a sock-like collar with heel pull tab for easy on/off. The lace-up closure with rope laces allows the wearers to personalize the fit.

The low-top Adidas ZX Flux ADV Verve has been revamped to suit as a lifestyle kick. It contained a simplified outsole and streamlined upper for all-day wear. This modern casual shoe with influences from a performance sneaker is a perfect pair during the summer.

Most ladies can be seen sporting their ZX Flux ADV Verve with skinnies, joggers, leggings, and shorts. Meanwhile, some edgy ladies would pair their Verve’s with dresses, minis and crisp trousers.   

The Adidas ZX Flux ADV Verve ditched the heel cage which is the hallmark feature of the ZX line. Instead, they replaced it with simple yet bolstered synthetic overlay. This striking feature provides aesthetic value and at the same time delivers heel support.

In 1984, Adidas launched the ZX running shoe series. The brand focused on delivering quality footwear to different kinds of runners- all terrain or roadrunners, joggers or long distance runners. The Three Stripes provided footwear solution to the various needs of runners.

Adidas did not stop in engineering modernized footwear. The ZX line launched the breakthrough technologies such as Torsion and Soft Cell. Because of these revolutionary techs, the Adidas ZX became very popular in the runner’s domain and became the standard in the running shoe silhouette.

The ZX 8000 was released in 1988 that featured the Torsion technology. This technology allows the wearers to experience flexibility and support. In 2014, Adidas launched the ZX Flux, which was molded from the ZX 8000. Adidas mainly launched the ZX Flux to challenge the rival brand’s Nike Roshe Run.

The Adidas ZX Flux is the more straightforward version of the ZX 8000. The brand removed all the unnecessary layers and panels and created a single piece of clean upper with synthetic overlays. This silhouette has been an asset and has undergone various transformations under the Originals sub-brand.

In 2015, Adidas launched the ZX Flux ADV Verve that is designed exclusively for the women. They discarded the heel cage and changed it to synthetic overlay. This latest iteration essentially offers simple and clean profile with a high standard of comfort and durability.
