adidas Originals Spezial

The adidas Originals Spezial collection is one that looks to encapsulate all the identity of adidas that the world has come to love. The team, lead by Gary Aspden, delves into the vast archives to recreate some of the most loved deadstock pieces. adidas Originals Spezial is about reinvention, reimagination and reinvigoration resulting in a range of footwear, apparel and accessories that combine premium materials, modern cuts and nostalgia all at once. They boast a collection that gives a nod to all of these areas without being dedicated to a single one.

In the short history of the adidas Spezial capsule collection it has already given birth and rebirth to a number of classics; the Albrecht and Albrecht Mid, the Topanga, the New York, the Munchen and of course the infamous Ardwick.

Autumn/Winter 2017

The latest collection for adidas Spezial Autumn/Winter 2017 continues to take inspiration from adidas enduring legacy in sport and leisure. Goldie is chosen as a man central to the ideas and philosophy of this year’s adidas Spezial collection. It aims to highlight not only the UK’s casual scene but the very surroundings of those who saw it inspire so many people. One of the world’s most influential, creative visionaries and SHOWStudio founder, Nick Knight OBE has been drafted for the shoot.

Apparel

Tracksuits play a key part in each collection of the Spezial collections and two are present this season, the Beckenbauer Tailored Tracksuit, with striking red details including elbow patches, and the Lapskaus Tracksuit. Gary Aspden explains in a promo video how their footwear was used as inspiration, typified by the release of the Ardwick Anorak, which shares the same shades as the Ardwick SPZL released to much notoriety. Padded vests & jackets and t-shirts make up the collection of clothing.

Footwear

As usual the range of new trainers look to be stunning, possibly their best yet. The adidas Spezial Spiritus SPZL had long been leaked and are much anticipated in two colourways, Gary Aspden speaks about the time taken to perfectly recreate the adidas Originals Spirit, of which only 3 pair are known to still be in existence! The Winterhill SPZL continue the lineage of adidas Spezial boots, and the McCarten SPZL, named after a friend of Aspden and active adidas Originals collector, are this season’s leisure shoe. The Wensley GT SPZL are a continuation of the Wensley from last season, again inspired by a Russian creation and the Intack SPZL stand out with their distinctive heel detail.
