UPDATE: You've seen how adidas' new Spezial sneakers look in the vacuum of a studio, now see how they fair on-foot. The terrace-fashion styled treats will be rioting through stores on September 22 – be sure to check Titolo to grab your pair.
The adidas SPEZIAL range is the ultimate in contemporary casuals chic. In this instance we're referring to the football hooligan aesthetic known as casuals culture – not the shirt and jeans you wear to the office on a Friday. If you don’t recognise that mug in the lookbook shots (then you’re getting quite the cultural lesson here) that’s Goldie, an icon of the London underground.
The latest SPZL footwear collection features ten different options from the adidas archive; some are one-to-one remakes, others are modernised interpretations. New models for this round are the GT Wensley, McCarten, TRX and Winterhill, while the return favourites are the Super Tobacco, Intack, Spiritus and Lancombe. Each is done up in a classically inspired colourway for a certified terrace-ready look.
The new adidas SPEZIAL range will be dropping at select stockists on September 22.
