In a new video release from adidas Originals, Design Director, Sam Handy and Business Unit Director, Torben Schumacher discuss the orignal inspiration and design elements to the ZX Flux. The original ZX 8000 was released in 1989 to praise from athletes to sneaker enthusiasts. The sleek design and attractive colorway made it highly sought after.
This is what the ZX FLUX hopes to rekindle with admirers. The ZX FLUX has the sleek form of the original, but it has been pared down to the minimalistic and modern style that is popular today. Handy and Schumacher describe what those changes are and how this project breathes the spirit of the ZX 8000.
