For anyone who knows sneakers, the adidas ZX 9000 'Hydra' is either the holy grail or the model you wouldn't necessarily wear but respect. Of course, adidas knows this as well so they let the colorway be the guiding hand for the ZX Flux NPS Mid.

This release adds to the rich legacy of the runner by being cut slightly higher and slimmed-down for sleekness. The shoe is given a grey nubuck and mesh upper along with hits of teal accents to provide a further flip on the classic colorway. The outsole and heel cap combination really drives the point home.

For now, the revamped runner has been spotted overseas, but they'll probably make their way to the U.S. soon. If you can't wait for them to arrive stateside, hit up Asphalt Gold to get your pair shipped over.
