The Adidas Originals Italia Independent print pack is part of a collection of Adidas ZX Flux packs that also includes the Italia Independent NPS pack. However, there's no question that the print pack is the more bold and eye-catching of the two.

The print pack sees the merging of animal print with a rave-inspired rainbow upper that comes together with an unabashedly bright hot pink heel cate and midsole. A zebra print features Italian flag colors, while classic camouflage hues are featured in a dog's tooth patterns in two colorways -- khaki tonals and blue/black.

The shoe is equipped with a satin-like upper that compliments the animal print perfectly, while the TPU 3-stripes mark and translucent outersole give the shoe a modern and technical feel.

The Adidas Originals Italia Independent print pack is an example of integrating iconic design cues with boldly modern visual elements.
