We’ve previously noted the blank-slate quality of the adidas Originals ZX Flux, making it suitable for an endless number of design possibilities, but this new Ballistic Woven Pack plays a restrained hand when it comes to the color palette, limited here to fairly straightforward black, navy and metallic grey hues. It’s the material applications through which the shoe stand outs, featuring an upper and tongue constructed from a ballistic nylon weave, with the subtly reflective materials delivering a tough and utilitarian style. The welded TPU 3-Stripes and tonal heelcage retain the ZX Flux’s familiar technical look and feel, while a two-tone midsole streamlines the Torsion tooling, offering a subtle nod to the shoe’s provenance. Look for the adidas Originals ZX Flux Ballistic Woven Pack to launch in stores September 1st.
