When it was first released in 1989, the ZX 8000 shoe was more than just a new shoe. Part of the pioneer ZX Family, it was a calculated step forward that captured the hearts of dedicated athletes and street-level casuals the world over. The true impact of the ZX 8000 shoe, however, was its larger than life looks. The OG Aqua colourway took the sneaker community by storm with contrast violet panels and lemon yellow 3-stripes, and the iconic outsole tooling left a mark that continues to resonate today. Built for the trendsetters looking to turn heads, the shoe would make regular returns throughout the 90s in bold colourways that were consistent in setting the streets alight.
25 years on, the ZX 8000 shoe is a testament to the style-conscious creativity & relentless passion that first brought it to the streets, while the ZX fusion of innovative new technology and instinctively clean aesthetics continues to create shoes that leave lasting impressions. In the next-generation ZX FLUX, the ZX 8000 shoe’s formula takes a brand new direction that strips the excess to the strictly essential. From the legacy of a futuristic silhouette that dared to be different, the new ZX FLUX offers understated style that’s ready to perform – a blank canvas, which adidas have taken full advantage of…starting in February we have the first drop of the Base Elements pack which includes my fav of the whole collection which has a lightening pattern (check my instagram for a on feet image..here) then April with three packs set to drop. Photo Print, Flux Weave & the Base pack which features six colourways three neons and three subtle’s. Check out all the styles below and let me know what you think.
