UNITED ARROWS & SONS (Japan) x adidas Originals ZX Flux “Indigo”

Japanese style purveyor UNITED ARROWS & SONS join forces with adidas Originals once again for a collaborative take on the ZX Flux running shoe. This time around, the two have reworked the simplistic runner with a traditional Japanese indigo dying-inspired gradient colorway.

The unique hue is based on the natural indigo dyed fabric produced by the Miyazaki-based Aulico workshop, which was then printed along the upper of the sneaker. A metallic blue heel cage and dark blue coloration for the Three Stripes and laces round out the design for the upper.

Priced at ¥14,040 JPY (approximately $118 USD) the UNITED ARROWS & SONS x adidas Originals ZX Flux “Indigo” will be available for purchase at UNITED ARROWS locations in early May.

As part of the ongoing anniversary celebration of the Superstar silhouette, adidas Originals has commissioned frequent Three Stripes collaborator Yohji Yamamoto to offer his own unique take on the classic shoe.

Finishing touches include blue waxed laces and Yamamoto’s signature branding on either side.

The Yohji Yamamoto x adidas Originals Superstar “Metallic” will carry a price tag of $380 USD and will be available at select adidas stockists in the coming weeks.
