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.

After getting an early preview, we’ve now got a full look at the latest installment of BAIT and ASICS Basics Model” program. Moving away from the military inspirations of the two prior shoes, the design of the Gel Lyte III “Basics Model-003 Nippon Blues” draws inspiration from Japanese tradition and culture.
The upper features Japanese indigo Kasuri textile paired with rugged, navy nailhead suede, and red accents and laces. In a subtle nod to ASICS’ place in footwear culture to the West, the footbed has been finished with classic hickory denim.
If you haven’t done so yet, head to BAIT now to register for your chance to purchase these and the first two models. For those of you looking to score all three, there is a limited run of three-packs available too.
