Notable Features

The Primeknit treatment makes the ZX Flux Primeknit stand out as this is the first time a member of the ZX series received a knit upper. Adidas wanted to make the shoe even more versatile with the introduction of this upper material.

With Adidas ZX Flux Primeknit, there is more of a sock-like feel, freedom of movement, and comfort without completely doing away with the support that the ZX series is known for. It features the classic Torsion System technology that is designed for midfoot integrity.

Adidas ZX Flux Primeknit History

The 80s was such a huge and important time in the history of most brands who were looking to make a bigger impact in performance footwear. For Adidas, one of its biggest contributions to this category was the Adidas ZX series.

It all started with the ZX 500, which was made available to the public originally in 1984. It was followed by the ZX 600, ZX 700, and finally, the ZX 800, which is the closest to what the ZX Flux offers to this day. The ZX 8000 was also the first shoe to feature the classic Torsion System technology.

Adidas wanted to blend the glory of the past with some of today’s most advanced technologies. Hence, the Adidas ZX Flux was born. The introduction of this shoe changed the view of Adidas fans that somehow there is very little that separates technology and performance to lifestyle when the right design and innovation are used.
