ZX Flux x David Beckham
The newly unveiled ZX Flux was introduced with limited collaborative
styles from the likes of Boys Noize, David Beckham, Jenah Yamamoto,
Sneaker Freaker, and Chimperator Productions. These models are
especially exciting because they’re not just promotional moves: Adidas
Originals is also relaunching mi adidas, a sneaker customization app.
mi adidas for ZX Flux, #miZXFLUX App will launch on this Friday, August 22nd, 2014.
I tried the app out, and it’s quite easy and simple. You choose a
photo on your phone or tablet, view, and swipe from various angles; the
app will show you a 360-degree mock-up of your sneakers. My favorite
result was when I tried it with Hodori(호돌이), the mascot of the Seoul 1988 Summer Olympic Games.
It’s an exciting experience to be able to customize your kicks.
People want more extraordinary experiences in their lives, and in my
opinion, this is an almost perfect way to do that.
