The adidas ZX Flux Solid Grey On The Way
Fans of the adidas ZX Flux will be happy to see this brand new build and colorway of the shoe. Opting to go with a knitted upper, the adidas ZX Solid Grey is a has a cozy look that we’re sure many people will enjoy.
The shoe starts off with a Solid Grey knitted upper offset by a lighter grey hue placed on the Three Stripes branding on the side panels. The same light grey hue is found on the laces, while a tan heel counter and tongue label provide some nice contrast on the shoe. Lastly, the shoe is placed on top of an off-white midsole to give the shoe a nice classic look. Available internationally, let us know if you plan on scooping up a pair once they arrive stateside.
The knitted upper in that Solid Grey colorway looks really clean. Add in the tan hits and this is a dope shoe for the Fall season. I usually don’t like ZX Fluxes but I’ll make an exception for this one.

Older sneakerheads are definitely going to appreciate this upcoming adidas release. If you were into sneaker during the ’80s, you probably know about the adidas Riviera. Considered to be a timeless classic, adidas has decided to bring back the model as a one-to-one remake of the OG design.
Designed and crafted exactly like the pairs from the ’80s, the Riviera comes constructed out of a premium suede upper accented by the velour material found in the stripes of the shoes. In addition to those traits, you will also find a matching heel tab. Branding appears on the tongue all while sitting on top of a gum rubber outsole. The two colorways will debut the return of the Riviera which can be your beginning March 5th. Cop or drop?
I was a young buck when these released so I have no nostalgia feeling towards them. The design is simple but it worked back then and it works now. Truly a classic that I’m sure many people will be happy to see return.

Here’s a hypothetical question for everybody: If you could own one pair of adidas sneakers that were either designed or inspired by a musical artist, which one would you go with? My guess is that most people would probably pick any of the Yeezys by Kanye West, but I already have a pair. If they’re not feeling the Yeezys, maybe they go with one of Pusha T’s EQT Running Support collabs. How about a signed pair of Snoop Dogg cleats? I’m good with that too.
So if I have all of those kicks already, what else is there? Well, there’s the Big Sean Detroit Players and while that’s a viable option, I would have to go with a pair that is quite limited but also appropriate considering how much I loved this particular artist’s music during my formative years. In all honesty, even if I didn’t have any of the sneakers I already mentioned, I would still pick this pair of “trainers” over everything, which is the British term for kicks. In this edition of Sneaker Grails, let’s take a look back at the adidas NG-72, which are former Oasis member Noel Gallagher’s “player exclusive” kicks.
“A big, big bag full of money, two VIP tickets to the World Cup Final and they said I could endorse my own adidas shoes.” – Noel Gallagher and how he ended up with an adidas PE
In maybe not the most shocking news in the world, there was a time when Noel Gallagher was totally addicted to drugs (considering he wrote “Champagne Supernova”, I’ll just leave it at that). When he quit the habit in 1998, he found a new fix in the form of trainers. Considering he was a pretty rich guy and Oasis was at the peak of their popularity during that time, getting sneakers was no problem for the songwriter and occasional singer for the band. He started buying multiple adidas vintage trainers and hiding them in all sorts of nooks and crannies so that his wife wouldn’t see them. He has since cut his collection down to a more reasonable number, but the itch is still there. See? Celebrities are just like us ordinary sneakerheads. They have that burning desire to accumulate as many pairs as possible, lose their mind, cut their losses and then do it all over again.
Anyways, in 2010, adidas Originals tapped Gallagher and Ian Brown to participate in a series of ads for the World Cup. It was there the relationship between the musician and his favorite brand started in an official capacity and a year later, they released the NG-72. Limited to only 200 pairs in the world and sold only in London and Berlin to coincide with the release of his 2011 album Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, the shoe’s trainer’s signature feature are Noel’s picture plastered on the tongue on the shoe with the “Endorsed By” box in the same style as the adidas Stan Smith and his initials can be found on the laces and the heel tab. A quick Google search will reveal that while many of the shoes did end up getting sold, Gallagher seemed to have quite the stash for himself and has ended up donating many of them to various UK charities complete with an autograph.
With only 200 pairs in existence, finding any of these is going to be a pain and even then, the price that I would have to pay to convince a Gallagher/Oasis superfan to let go of them is probably unreasonable. Maybe my best chance is to tweet Liam Gallagher and ask him if he has a pair and hope he sends them my way out of spite for his brother. Ah well, don’t look back in anger, except for maybe this one time…

adidas Takes NMD To New Heights With The City Sock
We’ll start out by stating the obvious – a shoe called a “City Sock” built with Primeknit or any sort of soft, knit upper will draw immediate comparisons to Nike’s Sock Dart, a sneaker that was created a decade ago, returned with a vengeance in late 2014, and is already exploring new routes with Tech Fleece uppers. While going the mid-top Chukka-style route seemed natural for adidas NMD, calling it the City Sock seems a bit provoking, but it’s still an attractive approach that comes right as the NMD hype is starting to explode. This upcoming black/blue pair opts for a tonal black upper with no three-stripe markings of any kind, except for the literal branding on the heel-tab. And like the NMD Runners, we expect several colorways of the City Sock to release somewhere down the line. Peep the high-res photos just below and give us your thoughts on the shoe design and name, and stay tuned for release info for this casual/fashion style.
