When it was first released in 1989, the adidas ZX 8000 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.

Crucial technologies brought the best performance out of every wearer, such as SoftCell technology in the heel and the revolutionary Torsion system that allowed free and natural movement of the foot. Moving outside, the now-iconic TPU heel cage provided vital support and a futuristic look that shook the ground from the start.

In the next-generation ZX Flux, the ZX 8000 formula takes a brand new direction. Stripped back to the strictly essential ZX DNA, the silhouette is a blank canvas primed for the limitless possibilities of a bold and daring journey.

Produced in a numbered run of 250 shoes, the Consortium ZX Flux tweaks the shoe’s minimalist aesthetic with a purple mesh upper, offset by welded black Three Stripes and a contrast heel cage in white. The predominantly white tooling is enhanced by a bright red outsole, which matches the individually numbered lace jewel.
