adidas Originals and Italia Independent, led by eccentric entrepreneur Lapo Elkann, have collaborated to release two ZX Flux packs: the Italia Independent print pack and the Italia Independent NPS Pack. The print pack consists of four shoes. Cheetah print is portrayed with a rave-inspired rainbow colorway with a pink midsole; a zebra print upper is adorned with three stripes in the Italian flag colors (an homage to Lapo’s heritage); and a dog’s tooth pattern is presented in camo in both khaki tonals and blue/black. Each of these four sports a satin-like upper, while all but the rainbow one sport icy blue soles. The second pack consists of two shoes, one grey and one navy, both sporting a Ballistic woven fabric upper that takes inspiration from carbon fiber. The sock liners sport Italia Independent prints using a camo/dog’s tooth pattern. Both of these feature translucent soles, and the heel cages are made of alutex, again presented in a carbon fiber-esque weave. Check out extensive images of all six of these below, and look for these to release on October 15th, 2014.
