New season adidas Originals Spezial always gathers a lot of attention. We thought we’d take to the streets of Manchester with fashion and lifestyle blogger Mat Buckets and photographer Jake Millers to give the latest SS17 gear a run out. The range consists of the military inspired Haslingden II Jacket, the full Forest Gate tracksuit and the Mallison trainer, amongst others. Have a look at the results below…
The Haslingden II Jacket – This men’s jacket is made in CORDURA®, a technical material often favoured for military gear because of its durability and weather resistance. Multiple cargo pockets give it a utility-inspired look.
The Pleasington Rain Jacket is an update of one that debuted from the 70s, the material has water repellent finish and zip kangaroo pockets
Inspired by a vintage football top from the French team FC Nantes, the Two Elevens Shirt delves into the brand’s rich history of sportswear.
The Mallison SPZL features styling from the AS700 shoe, but has been updated with a new colourway for this season.
The actual inspiration for this shoe isn’t fully known, it was an early prototype that was never fully made. The Wensley SPZL features nylon and suede overlays, with a gum sole.
The original Jogger reborn based on the Hawaii tooling, with a short T-toe overlay and retro suede upper.
Part of Drop 1, the Garwen SPZL has already proved to be popular – based around the Brisbane the brand have produced a low version of this boot with this great article.
After releasing the New York for FW15, the range explored other city series running shoes with the Atlanta SPZL. Originally released in 1983, the shoe’s colour is inspired by the City’s sports teams.
