Adidas ZX 2K Flux: Harmonizing style and comfort

Adidas designed the Adidas ZX 2K Flux sneaker for men and women with a refined look and maximized comfort. This addition to the ZX line features a simplified version of its predecessor, added with hints of futuristic appeal.

What are the updates?

  • Unlike the Adidas ZX Flux covered with the traditional mesh, the 2K version uses stretchy knit or finer mesh on its upper. 
  • The ZX 2K Flux has a reinforced eyelet; it uses suede overlays to enhance the lacing system's support instead of the classic version that uses traditional plastic eyelets.
  • A heel pull tab is also added on the Adidas Originals ZX 2K Flux for easy on and off. 
  • Found on the forefoot is the TPU molded overlay that adds protection and enhances durability.

Since it was unveiled in the 80s, the ZX has been tagged as a staple silhouette for various modernizations and collaborations. Adidas now brags its impressive collection of ZX sneakers, and here are some of the popular iterations included in this collection:

  • Adidas ZX 750. This version was initially designed for the long-range run. It is constructed with a high-performance midsole with an iconic heel cage for support. 
  • Adidas ZX 2K 4D. This kick boasts its futuristic cushioning called the 4D. This tech is a digitally printed midsole that provides lighter and bouncy cushioning to its wearers. 
  • Adidas ZX 500 RM. This modernized version of the classic ZX Flux uses another innovative cushioning technology from Adidas, the responsive and bouncy Boost technology
