The adidas Originals ZX Flux continues to make a strong case as one of the best sneakers of 2014 so far. This lightweight runner's next release pays homage to the model that inspired its creation. The ZX 8000 "Aqua" debuted in the late '80s and was considered a game-changer back in its day. We liked it so much that we ranked it as the #10 best adidas sneaker of all time.

The "Aqua" colorway returns this year on the ZX Flux in all its original glory. The sneaker is outfitted in aqua blue with tonal shades and purple and yellow accents. Even the signature texture on the ZX 8000's toebox and tongue is incorporated into the ZX Flux's mesh upper.

An official U.S. drop is not yet known, but these will be released in Germany on August 1.
