Following on from the release of the adidas SPEZIAL ‘Made for HIP’ Elland, Gary Aspden’s adidas Originals SPEZIAL imprint returns with a new collection of footwear and apparel for AW20 inspired by terrace culture and adidas’ rich archive.

Spanning across a wide variety of silhouettes, each piece takes reference from the deep adidas Originals archives, procuring lesser known styles from the past with new life through unique hybrids that people have come to expect from adidas Spezial.

Footwear is spearheaded by the reworked HRMNY SPZL – an archival style from the original Torsion range which was originally a woman’s shoe and revered by German football fans. Following in the paths of previous leisure shoes, the Newrad SPZL is an all new silhouette arriving in light brown nubuck built on the Bermuda tooling and branded with an embossed ‘Mod Trefoil’ patch to the lateral side. The Alderley SPZL is a new Spezial court inspired hybrid that takes the foundations of its design from the mesh and foxing of the Rod Laver Vintage with a distinctive perforated leather toe. Footwear in the collection is rounded off with a pair of adilette slides with the debossed Mod Trefoil relief and Spezial branding.

The apparel side of the collection sees the return of an adidas Spezial favourite with the SL Haslingden jacket – widely regarded as one of Spezial’s most popular jackets ever, this time constructed in a super lightweight fabric with tonal 3 stripe branding. The ST11 is a newly developed jacket that comes in a bold gold colourway and draws inspiration from the silhouettes of the Standard Training of the late 70s with an updated colour, materials and fit. Additional staples apparel styles include the Mod Trefoil sweat in a chalk white Terry, white logo carrier tee, tapered navy track pant and trace green cargo short in the classic ‘Aldwych’ fit. A multi panel, peaked, logo cap in a warm beige with adjustable fit and three vent holes rounds of the collection.

The adidas Originals Spezial AW20 Chapter 1 collection is online now and in both our Leeds and Nottingham stores.
