4. Box Label

Adidas shoe boxes feature a label on the one side detailing style name, size, color, country of manufacture and a style & PO number. Check all of these details carefully. Tip 1: Check that the style (ART) and PO (#) numbers match those found on the label inside the shoe. Tip 2: scan the barcode (even a photo of one) with a barcode scanner app, the exact product including size should be correct.

7. Heel Support

Have a close look at the heel cage, check that the debossed molding has sharp straight edges. Note how the cage seems to press into the upper as opposed to just sitting on top of it.

18. Sole Logo

One of the most well recognize features of the Adidas ZX Flux is the midfoot Torsion System bar. The Torsion logo is embossed into the Torsion bar. There is also a Trefoil logo embossed into the Torsion bar. Make sure the edges of the logos are sharp and clean. Make sure the Torsion typeface is correct. Note how the Torsion bar sits neat and tightly into the midsole rubber, providing superior midfoot integrity. This is a good opportunity to see how the outsole rubber is a seperate layer joined to the midsole.
