adidas zx flux sam handy 1 Original DNA In Its Simplest Form: Discussing ZX Flux with Sam Handy of adidas Originals

It all started with a video preview. The adidas ZX 8000, a 25 year old runner from the adidas archive that got the ball rolling on the now beloved ZX line, was seen shedding its layers and transforming into something more modern: the adidas ZX Flux.

It was that Berlin preview that manifested the power of the printed pairs – the shelves there were packed with a version of the sneaker that sported smooth uppers dipped in colorful, lush images and patterns that topped anything previously seen in terms of printed sneakers.
