9 Pairs Of Adidas ZX Flux Re-Imagined By Artists


As of a few days ago, anybody can put the latest Banksy on their shoes. And that’s half the problem. Although Adidas’ new mi ZX Flux app (which prints any photo onto a custom pair of ZX Flux) promises infinite originality, there are still scads of kicks lined up bearing the Coca-Cola logo, pictures of cash and camo prints cribbed from the likes of Bape. Where’s the authenticity, or originality, in that?

In response, we found nine of the most awesome ZX Flux shoes to have hit Instagram, all created by designers, artists and other creatives who made a pair using only their own original work. The results? Kicks as original as they are.

Carl Cashman is an international artist based out of the United Kingdom, probably best-known for his series of geometric-based neon works entitled Neometry. His designs are available on T-shirts, skateboards and, now, in the ZX Flux silhouette.

This print is an illustration by the freelance artist over at Ink Park Co. The toon-inspired illustrator’s designs can be found on various brands’ clothing, including Publik Trust and Bleu & Cream.

Some kids doodle through class, but this kid’s convinced us we’ve got a future Tinker Hatfield on our hands. In fact, user PennyFung_Ho is obsessed with NBA drawings and, apparently, sneakers. They turned their illustration of Dirk Nowitzki into their own personalized kick.

According to his Instagram profile, Reno Soz is a French tattoo artist, illustrator and custom guitar maker. His works appear online and on various people. They also look damn good on a pair of kicks.

Bringing a retro edge to the ZX Flux silhouette, designer W.T. Warmoth applied a neon oil wallpaper to his shoe. The results are a sneaker with a sweet Mad Men vibe.

Sketch artist K.T. Williams, who goes by the artist’s name Jon Judace, put one of his fine line pencil and pen sketches through the app. The London-based artist counts tribal and abstract art among his influences, and more of his work can be found on his website.

Rather than put up a page from a comic book, artist and designer Valentino Valdez used one of his original sketches of Cyclops from X-Men. The result has that perfect touch of hand-drawn swagger.

Judging by his account, Alexandre Osmoze Brakha, an animator, illustrator and art director out of Montreal, is a true sneakerhead. The design he used—a rabbit whose fists spell out “Funk You”—seems particularly fitting given the name of his website, Pink Rabbit Corp.

Aberdeen, Scotland-based graphic designer Jahncie Hepburn created this original design using Illustrator. The self-professed lover of neon takes gigs over on his website.
