I’ve just never really thought of myself as a sneakers kind of person. My style has always been versatile but looking sporty would probably be the very last on the list of styles I actually can emulate. So, I decided that it was time to own a pair of sporty sneakers, to expand my versatility just a pair of shoes more in the form of the adidas ZX Flux shoes.
The ZX Flux collection is available in three themes:
ZX Flux Base Tone
ZX Flux’s Base Pack’s technical feel can be attributed to its 2-tone mesh upper and welded TPU 3-Stripes execution.
The shoes’ stripped back modern design is balanced by the midsole’s colour blocking style, which is inspired by the ZX 8000 trainers. A simple colour palette is also available and consumers have the option of bright red or cobalt blue on a black and white midsole.
ZX Flux Print Pack
The Print Pack is full of intense, photo-real colours and the digitally printed upper of the ZX Flux is vividly captured on satin.
Leopard print has always been a crowd favourite and the interpretation comes in bold berry accents on the 3-Stripes mark and tongue label, while another model features a contemporary rush of watercolour print, which is anchored with black 3-Stripes and heel cage and a white tooling.
Minimal, smooth lines against gutsy prints, the ZX Print Pack is full of delightful contradictions.
ZX Flux Reflective Snake Print Pack
The versatility of the ZX Flux can also be seen in the reflective snake print pack, which manages to incorporate a number of ground-breaking features on one shoe.
While snakeskin print is not new to adidas, the technique used to create a reptilian effect on this model was used on the Superstar and Americana trainers. ZX Flux’s upper features three layers: a synthetic base, reflective print on top, and finally a mesh overlay, which gives it a slightly muted yet texturized feel.
Neon pop details can be seen throughout, on the distinctive heel cage, sockliner and embroidered tongue tag, while the laces complement the snake print perfectly.
A few days ago, I headed to the adidas store in Festival Mall and Alabang Town Center to check out which designs they had.I was originally eyeing the gray/black ZX Flux Reflective Snake Print Pack but unfortunately neither of the two branches had it available.
The women’s shoes had the ZX Flux print pack available, so I settled with trying on both and seeing which one fit. I was torn because I was getting mixed opinions from friends telling me the splash of color was really nice, but I knew deep down that I wasn’t a colorful type of person… And I’m not really big on animal prints but I found the leopard print on really cute!
Trying on the colorful pair, just to see, maybe I’ll end up liking it.Trying on the leopard print pair, and already really liking it. HahaDing ding ding, we have a winner!!! I didn’t even give it any more second thoughts, I brought this baby to the counter and purchased it!
I could not be happier to own a pair of these adidas sneakers! I’m already thinking of where I can wear these shoes, and with what clothes. If you have any suggestions on how I can wear these shoes casually, I’d be happy to hear them!
