Got them quite easy, compared to Nike-Releases. They are sold out now, but getting them was easy, I even had time to fill in my address. No cartjacking.
That brings me to another thought:
Why are Nike/Jordan or any “limited” releases such a hassle?
I got the SNS Guidance (Beer), the Size? Guidance, Solebox Guidance (even two pairs) and these easy as well. Maybe because the resellers smell the money on Nike/ Jordan?
It really pisses me off and in return I’m not so after Nike/ Jordan or any limited releases.
If I get them, good, but if not, I’ll survive. And if I do, I give them away cheap to annoy the resellers.
I am too old to lust after limited releases anyway, I rather have something called ‘taste’. Let the kids play…
As all Flux, the shape is quite easy going on them. Well done. I like the whole Xeno-thing. Reflective isn’t new to shoes but it was rarely marketed as good.
It may be not as breathable as other materials but the reflective look is nice.
A nice touch is the soft cell unit in the heel which is made to look like a snakeeye.
The box is in the same snakeskin-look as the shoe and the stripes have the same reflective look. And even the packaging paper is snakeskin printed.
So, in a sentence:
They are a nice alternative to the ‘hot’ releases. It is still not common but a nice addition to your collection anyway.
Some new hypebeasts may not give you your respect for them but who cares?
It is one of the rarest and special Flux.
The Flux may be a new model inspired by older ones
but if you give it a chance you won’t be disappointed.
Get it if you like the Flux and want something special.
Don’t get it if it is not a ‘real’ ZX for you.
It is an eur 40 2/3.
