As you are no doubt aware, Gary Aspden and his intrepid team of Three Stripes historians are bringing back the Munchen Super as part of SPEZIAL's upcoming 'Acid Winter' FW18 Collection — but Gary wasn't content with only releasing a lime green make-up. In addition, Gary and his team are also treating us to a 1:1 replica of the OG Munchen Super in the classic adidas colour combination of sapphire blue and white, based directly on a model sourced from the adidas archives.
Similar to the lime green version we previously looked at, this blue iteration comes complete with classic adidas branding on the tongue and matching blue herringbone plug in the sole — one of the few times a coloured plug has ever been used on the model. This SPEZIAL version of the Munchen Super features an added heel guard and a foxing graduation that varies between 18mm and 30mm. For an added touch of authenticity, the Munchen Super SPZL also comes with a second set of vintage-style laces as a throwback the OG Gazelles of the late 80s.
The Munchen Super SPZL will release in both 'Blue' and 'Lime Green' colourways as part of Drop 1 of the adidas SPEZIAL ‘Acid Winter’ FW18 Collection, which is slated for release on September 7 through select top-tier adidas stockists.
