adidas SPEZIAL Summer ’22 Collection

Gary Aspden’s coveted adidas Originals SPEZIAL imprint returns with a new long-awaited collection for Summer. Featuring a variety of silhouettes taking reference from the adidas Originals archives, the collection draws wide inspiration from military and 1970s aesthetics whilst staying within the brands unique point of view.

Consisting of five unique silhouettes, the footwear offering for SPEZIAL for Summer ’22 is a mix of new hybrids alongside tweaked versions of lesser known shoes from the brand’s rich history. Starting off with the Adilette SPZL, which sees the return of the fan favourite slide in an off-white colorway with black embossed mod Trefoil and Spezial branding. The ZX 620 SPZL, takes cues from adidas’ famed ‘ZX Series’ with specific references to the ZX 600, ZX 555, and an assortment of mid 80s runners. An extension of adidas’ famed City Series: the Warszawa SPZL. Boasting a maroon suede upper with bright yellow synthetic leather stripes and a navy rubber outsole, the silhouette seamlessly reimagines the past for today. An archive style returns in the form of the Stapfen SPZL – featuring a unique lacing system with rope laces, a brown suede upper, tonal brown suede overlays, and a gum rubber outsole. The Summer ’22 collection is capped off with the Yabisah SPZL – brought back from the brand’s famed ‘Island Series’ for the first time, the sleek runner returns in a perfect one to one recreation from the past.

Transitioning focus from footwear to accompanying apparel – the collection features a number of military-inspired yet timeless garments which perfectly compliment the footwear offering. Headlined by the Calavadella Jacket – arriving in a seasonal peach colourway. Keeping the warmer months in mind, the Portinatx Shorts arrive in a sand colorway with the addition of an embroidered round Mod Trefoil badge. The Manarch TT is an elevated tracksuit and a refined take on the Beckenbauer silhouette, the carefully created track top features tonal black details and silicone badges. A selection of lightweight t-shirts and polos, meanwhile, offers a number of perfect options for the hot Summer days. Rounding out the seasonal offering is an accessories selection made up of the classic Parbold II Bag and a graphic Patch Bucket hat.
