Adidas ZX Flux Weave History

German brand Adidas has been producing performance footwear since it was established by Adolph Adi” Dassler on August 18, 1949. Among fashionable running shoes that came out of the Adidas brand is the ZX Flux.

The ZX Flux line was first released in 1984 covering various styles and designs for different runners. The new line includes road, all-terrain, and track running shoes under the ZX Flux line that caters to the need of recreational runners to professional runners.

Using the Torsion cushioning system and Soft Cell technologies in most of the design for the ZX Flux, the line came out with around 16 running shoe designs creatively engineered to match the needs of different runners and eventually paving the way for trainer shoes coming out of the line.

One of these shoes is the Adidas ZX8000 which first came out in 1988. The futuristic design of the upper uses the Torsion technology that gives cushioning and support to the forefoot and heel. The technology also allows the runner to have enhanced flexibility and control.

Since 2014, the Adidas ZX line has been resurrected to compete with Nike’s Roshe Run series with a few modern upgrades in material and a sleek silhouette. The Adidas ZX Flux Weave came out a few years later with some unimportant panels removed in a seamless upper and using a synthetic and mesh material with the signature ZX TPU External Heel Cage.

Additional Info

  • The Adidas signature Three-Stripe logo comes embedded in the design of the weave synthetic material in the upper.
  • A cushioned tongue and collar give additional comfort, and the textile lining provides a soft in-shoe feel.
