I’m sometimes partial to bright colours in my clothing choices, but with Valentines fast approaching, 2017 has got me feeling the cupid’s arrow. So naturally, I decided to invest in a pair of Adidas ZX Flux in red, yes, they’re literally bright red. Wouldn’t you too? I mean after all, my current 14th of February line up consists of a Nandos for one, so someone or something has to get the love I have to give, and why not a pair of trainers?
Laughs aside, I genuinely needed some new sneakers for leisure or training and the Adidas ZX Flux caught my eye on when browsing the Adidas website. Formally given the Power Red/Collegiate Burgundy label, these puppies cause some serious punch to your vision. In a dark environment, such as my bedroom (pictured below) these kicks still manage to pop and stand out from the background.
According to Adidas’ website, these trainers are designed for running and are a descendant of the iconic ZX 8000 running shoe. With a simple and modern design, the shoe is still striking to the everyday passerby. I have to admit, when I first wore these, my level of attention sky rocketed – sadly the potential date was only interested in the treads and not me. I might pre-order that medium half chicken…
Sporting the signature three stripes, and solid lines throughout the design, a layer of mesh is all that joins the design together. When wearing the shoe, it feels as though i’m wearing a pair of thick socks, it’s a dream. Though I’m yet to wear these for training at the gym, I have a strong feeling they’re much more suited for this environment, unless you’re the kind of person who would love the looks and stares as you walk down the street.
If you’re looking for some bold statement trainers, I highly recommend grabbing yourself a pair of the Adidas ZX Flux in red over at the Adidas website. Now let’s look at in awe.
