The ZX range is an advanced trainer selection with highly engineered supportive uppers containing torsion bars, EVA cushioning and hard-wearing rubber outsoles. They mix old-school style with modern angular designs and colour combinations.

Go back to the future with ZX

Our ZX collection of athletic trainers is a mash-up of styles across generations – as if we've taken the best bits of our various designs down the years and put them all into a single shoe. The emphasis is on a modernist clash of styles, with each element working in harmony to create a forward-looking yet still classic trainer. These shoes contain our some of our most advanced athletic technology, making them serious fitness gear too. They look the business and perform like it too.

The adidas ZX raises the bar for the modern trainer

adidas ZX trainers provide foot-hugging comfort thanks to EVA midsole cushioning combined with our Boost technology. Thousands of tiny gel capsules absorb kinetic energy as your foot lands, and return some of it to you as you lift off, like tiny trampolines. The uppers have durable and protective combinations of mesh, neoprene and TPU, with suede or synthetic, leather panels in some models. ZX colours range from monochrome to bright colours with reflective detailing. The latter is especially useful if you go road running in the early evening.

Advanced running shoes for all ages

These adidas ZX Flux trainers are made for all ages and genders. Your little ones can sport the 3-Stripes from the age of two, and you can trust our extra padding to look after them. We add OrthoLite® sock liners to swaddle young feet and keep the shoes firmly attached. Scuff-proof soles help make your life easier too. You'll also be doing your bit for the environment as we use a series of recycled materials, pairing our running pedigree with eco-awareness.
