For your money's worth, the adidas ZX Flux could be the best, and most consistent, new sneaker of 2014. It riffs on the ZX 8000's revolutionary approach to runners, but gives it a cleaner, more streamlined look. And it's super light.

If you've noticed, the ZX Flux has also come out in a multitude of different patterns, materials, and design make-ups. There are also simple ones available, too, like this navy pair available at JD Sports. It's comfortable, can be a wardrobe staple, and, more importantly, the shape of the sneaker just looks right. The slope of the toe is on point, and this Flux should be considered by anyone who wants a bit of the future in their rotation.

You can grab them here right now for roughly $112, or check out the rest of JD's adidas products here.
