The next Spezial exhibition will take place in Blackburn’s Cotton Exchange as part of the British Textile Biennal. It will be open to the public from the 4th-20th October. This image was taken at last year’s ZX exhibition in London - we are aiming to showcase quadruple the number of shoes that were included there which will make this this by far the biggest Spezial exhibition yet. Highlights will include a full archive of footwear from the Spezial range (including unseen working prototypes) along with a comprehensive presentation of the European city series. This is a free exhibition but there will the opportunity to make charity donations - proceeds from the project will go to @nightsafebwd to support the amazing work they do with youth homelessness. Thanks to all who are spreading the word and to everyone who is working hard behind the scenes right now to make this as good as it can be. We plan to make another major announcement on Thursday 12th September. #adidasspezial #britishtextilebiennial #nightsafe
