Adidas ZX Flux ADV X History

The ZX Series has been a vital part of Adidas’ shoe collection since the 80s. The release of ZX 500 in 1984 changed the worldview on running shoes, adding a more stylish flare into the running world. Apart from its good looks, the ZX Series also introduced cutting-edge technology for runners during its time by creating a collection of shoes that cater to different type of runners’ needs. They ushered in breakthrough devices in sports and running such as Torsion and Soft Cell technologies, which attracted more fans.

In 2014 a new edition was added to the ZX family called the ZX Flux. It was a celebration of the history of its predecessor – the classic ZX 800. It stripped back to the basics giving it a more modern and minimal look. It also made use of modern technology and adds prints and patterns in a never-before-seen fashion.

Today the ZX Flux ADV X is one of the line’s latest addition to the family. Combining both futuristic and minimalist looks from its ancestors, this sneaker is getting praised as a stylish comeback from the line. Its classic yet trendy look proved it to be a relevant yet timeless choice for sneaker enthusiasts.
