    Adidas commitment to us is uncompromising, unwavering and forever. I’m ready to own a pair #ZXflux
    The Adidas customization and the imminent sequel, the three stripes continues to hit the shoe with a bevy of enticing options. #ZXFlux

  15. My pair of ZX Flux would be covered in a collage of old school comics with blue laces, cant wait to try them on ;P

  16. My pair of ZX Flux would be designed based on the first photo I took on my first iPhone [a milestone for me], It the dew drops that settled on the sunroof, pic taken from the inside of the car. Looks so rad! I’d then have the tongue, heel and laces in black.

    Check it out:

  17. My pair of ZX Flux would be designed to resemble an Aston Martin. The shoe itself would be blackish/grey with air vent design on the side. The tongue would be white to resemble the windscreen with a sleek spoiler image on the heel.

  18. My pair of ZX Flux would be the colour and texture of a Blue whale, the blow hole is where you put your feet in. I would strongly suggest that Addidas makes these and distributes them in Japan, they will be the fastest selling shoes in Asian History.

    See this image for example of the texture

    The only problem is there would be a lot of people with injured feet in japan as I’m sure there would be a massive amount of Fishermen mistaking the shoes for real whales and harpooning people in the feet. we may have to make them slightly less realistic to avoid this from happening as it would 100% definitely happen.

  19. My pair of ZX Flux would have fast food all over it – burgers, fries, hotdogs, onion rings, hell even pizza. With white sole and laces, and light blue background and tongue.

    Because fast food is all we ever think about, right??

  20. My pair of ZX Flux would be the colour and texture of a Blue Whale. The Blow hole is where you put your feet in. See this image for example of the texture:


    I would strongly suggest that Adidas put these into production immediately and launch them in Japan, and then the rest of Asia. It would become the fastest selling shoes in history. The only red flag is that they obviously can’t be too realistic otherwise there would be a huge amount of injuries caused by Japanese fisherman harpooning peoples feet, Mistaking the ZX Flux Blue Whale editions for actual Blue whales. This would 100% definitely happen so we can’t make them too realistic.

  21. My pair of ZXFlux would be full on grey with popcorn on it with red laces and a white sole.


    My entry for the MyCityByNight x Adidas ZX Flux competition would be a rad tropical island colourway.

    The main panels of the shoe will be a reminder of a little slice of paradise and island life. The palm tree print will make up this panel with it’s blended green leaves, leaving a rad tropical texture on your feet.

    The trim and stripes will be a cool summer splash of tropical clear blue water. This bright texture will pop out on top of the leaves to cool down your feet from the summer heat.

    Here’s what the final product looks like:


  23. My ZX Flux will have a jade green sole and the top would be a bright sky blue with a huge colourful Chinese dragon snaking its way around the shoe. The tongue would be also jade green and the laces sky blue with speckles of jade green.

  24. The ZX Flux that I’d want would consist of a two tone grey and neon green combo with the three stripe Adi original logo stitched in all over in an almost collage-like pattern. Sick I tells ya!

  25. My pair of ZX Flux would have a pink top, black heel, the laces would be silver and I would have the inside like leopard spots!

  26. My pair of ZX Flux would be denim, have a tan laces, with a white sole and a thin tan line on top of the sole!

  32. I’m going to go all Star Wars on this one and have a pair of ZX Flux – Yoda green! It’s got to have a rough texture to it, cause Yoda is old and everything… Keep the stripes in a red neon light saber and khaki tongue – Cause Yoda wears khakis of course. May the Force be with you!

    1. My pair of ZX Flux would be designed based on the Marvel Comics Character, Iron Man. I happened to find this pic a while back and now realised why I kept it. It needs to be featured on my pair of custom #ZXFLUX. The shoe will be white because of the background of the pic with the classic pic of Iron Man kneeling with his fist in the ground in red, iron man will wrap over the toe section. The heel, tongue and laces will be red.

      Here’s the pic:

  36. My pair of #Zxflux kicks will be light grey, with a black tip on the toe and heel, whilst the stripes and tongue are lime green with black laces. Perfect combination of simplicity and “well hello there gorgeous” .. based on a volcano, the grey and black portray the already spread lava that’s turned to ash, while the lime green illustrating the volcano is still alive and shouldn’t be given up in just yet as the lava is still flowing, just like everyday life..

  37. My pair of ZX Flux would be black but the black material must be in a stylish lace with the Adidas stripes in Gold as well as the tongue ofcoarse 🙂 …. The laces should be in black to make the Gold and Lace pop out.

  44. Just for you Craig…My pair of ZX Flux would be Blue and White in colour with the Chelsea badge on either side 🙂 seen as Chelsea are sponsored by Adidas….perfect fit don’t you think?

  45. I am however not a chelsea supporter, so if I were to win the would have to be red and white with the Manchester United badge

  46. This is so cool! Flip my mind is so full of different things. But top on my list would be a pair of giraffe print #ZXFLUX with a black toe like the giraffes tongue. Sole black with primary colour red laces and heel and side panel detailing, and the laces cover slip thing a true addidas blue.

    That would be awesome! Thanks for the best comps MCBN.

  47. The sickest and illest design on a pair of ZX Flux would be executed in Optimus Prime blue with some autobot insignia on the tongue. Cool collaboration with Adidas and transformers and why not Adidas partnered up with Star Wars

  48. My pair of ZX Flux would have a glow in the dark ink print on them with matte-black soles and white laces, so that when I go to bed after a hard run they look like a floating night-lite.

  49. My pair of ZX Flux would be yellow in the inside with a blue and black bacteria print on the outside (just google bacteria pattern 😀 ). Where the base color is matte black and the blue outlines of bacteria should be glossy/shiny. To top things off I will have the laces blue and sole black.

  50. My gorgeous pair of ZX Flux would have a bright,multicolour traditional Zulu shweshwe print, proudly showing off my South African heritage & pride. My rainbow nation shoe would have all black detail, including the laces, so that my shoes colours can truly pop !

  51. My pair of ZX Flux would a green and black weave all over, with the Adidas bars on the side filled with binary code text (like a Matrix feel to it)with a black sole and a green heel similar to the color of the binary code.

  52. My pair of ZX Flux would be Orange all over as Orange is said to inspire creativity, with a yellow sole and laces because yellow is associated with Imagination. Keep it simple but telling a whole lot.

  53. My pair of ZX Flux would have a montage of Kim Kardashian’s crying face all over it, with a white sole, and black laces.

  54. My pair of ZX Flux would have a dark green colour, as the base/main color of the sneaker, then the South African flag will be composed from that main color. So the inner & outer of the sneaker will have enough small South African flags(with all the south african colors)

  55. My ZX Flux would honour the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta- where hundreds of brightly coloured hot air balloons line the blue skies of Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The shoes would feature printed graphics of multiple hot air balloons against a blue sky with thin white clouds. The heel cage, laces laces and the 3 stripes would all be in sunset orange, as a reference to the sunset when the balloons make their decent back down.

    To get an idea of the photo print:

  56. My ADIDAS ZXFlux would have “I <3 MCBN" written in white while the heart (<3) is red and the whole shoe is black.

  57. I like the idea of sound waves or heart beat pattern on my ZXFlux design.
    Perhaps a all green base color with a black heart beat pattern and a white sole. Everybody will see you coming down the road – safety first 😀

  58. My ADIDAS #ZXflux would have Nguni hide patterns, with Assegai and Knob-Kerrie aglets on either end of the laces. Finished off with Zulu beaded Three Stripes and tongue shield. A hand stitched creation with‘Infinite Possibilities.’Do you agree?

  59. Kicks with quotes! From songs or just famous sayings, in some cool white writing on a blue/ black background

  60. My Adidas #ZXflux would be an ode to the classic C.R.E.A.M by the Wu Tang cLAN. It would be a collage of the intricate and details on a hundred dollar bill – Got to have Benjamin’s face at the back of the shoe with the adidas logo above his head (in gold). To keep it discrete, keep the stripes a solid money green with more detail from the dollar bill hidden. And just to top it off – money green tongue and it’s got to have GOLD laces – and most definitely money green sole.
