Someone needs to give the MET Office a nudge - the weather is playing havoc with the fashion calendar. It's almost 20 degrees outside and here we are sweating over adidas' new winter-ready ZX Flux.
Shedding the summer's breathable, woven layers, the latest version of adidas Originals' popular running-stroke-lifestyle trainer has hardened up for the coming sleet and sludge. A Cordura ballistic nylon envelopes the shoe's upper, the grey shimmering fabric offset by the on-trend suede stripes.
Most striking of all is the change in the lacing system: there's no cotton waiting to be ruined by rain, a nylon cord keeping the ZX Flux secure with a pull-to-tighten toggle system.
