History of Adidas ZX Flux ADV Asymmetrical

Back in the late 1980s, Adidas introduced the ZX Series. Known for their highly technical running shoes, these kicks were designed for everyone, competitive long-distance runners and Sunday joggers included.

The first model to be released under this line was the ZX500, its design was considered game-changing. Anyone can use it, regardless of style preference and athletic ability. Other 00s (hundreds) models followed. This, however, changed when the Torsion technology was introduced.

Fast forward to the year 2014, the brand, seeing ZX8000’s potential, decided to strip this model bare, leaving only its DNA. Its DNA plus favored elements of its original design were fused with modern-day’s innovation to create the iconic ZX Flux. Perceived as a blank canvas, this model transformed in many ways unimaginable.

2015 model, the Adidas ZX Flux ADV Asymmetrical, is one of the more recent additions in this line. It is also considered the most unique. Made with an asymmetrical lacing system and stripped off of Adidas’ renowned three-stripes, those unaware of its existence could not have guessed it was a ZX Flux model. Those with a keen eye, however, may notice its familiar heel counter and Torsion midsole.
