When first initiated by big-time collector Gary Aspden in 2013, the adidas Spezial retrospective blew the minds of Three-Stripe enthusiasts, showcasing over 800 pairs of adi-heat supplied by local collectors. When we last spoke with Gary, he was hot on the hunt from a hot tip of an unearthed mecca of adidas sneakers and wears laying dormant in Argentina. Riding on the wind of a historical unearthing of vintage heat - grab your copy of SNKR FRKR Issue 31 for the full low-down + additional images - the 2014 Spezial retrospective has elevated things to an entirely new level of sneaker stardom, as its second coming takes place in Manchester. With this much Three-Striped heat on hand, words really won’t do this justice - flick through the gallery above to take a ride on the escalator to adidas Heaven!
