adidas SPEZIAL SS20

The adidas SPEZIAL SS20 collection releases with us online on Thursday 11th June at 11pm BST.

adidas SPEZIAL offers an elevated collection of shoes, apparel and accessories for Three Stripes connoisseurs; curated by Gary Aspden and developed by the SPZL team who have an extensive knowledge of terrace culture and the history that inspires it - In Spezial we Trust.

The Spring Summer 2020 collection celebrates fifty years of British Soul - a contemporary take on the story, with adidas calling it 'a love letter to the expansive history of adidas Originals'. 

Four footwear silhouettes have been produced in premium materials and with outstanding attention to detail. As with every SPEZIAL collection you will find 1:1 reissues and updated modern interpretations that themselves will become future classics.

The Lotherton SPZL nods to the, now highly collectable, Ardwick SPZL which was crafted with input from Nigel Lawson of Oi Polloi. We still remember the overnight queues outside our store for the release of that grail iteration of the California back in 2014. The Lotherton showcases a well-appointed and rather lavish makeup that reimagines the original adidas Florida colourway, with a tech gold suede upper and craft green velvet Three Stripes. The Lotherton SPZL blends some interesting design features - lower foxing, asymmetric toe overlays and recreated ‘made in France’ branding on the tongue.

The Training 76 SPZL in white and black takes inspiration from a Japanese version of the Berlin. These low profile shoes are made of premium supple white leather, with suede overlays, contrasting black serrated Three Stripes and perfectly positioned gold foil lettering - the influence of the Northern Soul dance halls truly resonates through this style.

The Zurro SPZL is a hybrid, taking an upper pattern from a vintage Azzurro and pairing it with a striped midsole and colour palette from an ultra-rare adidas Montreal 76. Constructed in a bold blue premium suede with bright yellow accents and supplied with a pair of laces in each colour. The execution of the Zurro SPZL is superb, the silhouette is set to become a future classic and deserves its place in the adidas archive.

The Ashurst SPZL is a one to one reissue of the Sydney (with some minor tweaks), a hard to find, hard to get your hands on vintage silhouette. Named the Ashurst to honour the memory of devoted adidas collector Jack McLoughlin who's date of birth also features as a serial code on the inside of the shoes.

The Standish Anorak with a full ash blue ripstop shell and rich orange contrast detailing was inspired by a 1990s Adi-Tex outdoor jacket - the Standish is a terrace outerwear highlight with many technical features, a contemporary fit and subtle SPEZIAL branding.

With the Holbeck Jacket SPEZIAL presents 70s inspired tailoring. The Holbeck is slightly shorter in the body with a wide fold down collar, large front pockets and a rear yolk vent. A light-weight summer jacket in a vibrant spice yellow, with a contrasting orange quilted under collar panel, unique Three Stripes and SPZL details.

The season's SPEZIAL tracksuit is the Pleckgate (based on the fit of the Forest Gate from 2017), the Pleckgate is offered as a track top and track pants - a casual staple that sits well in this collection.

The Newsam Long Sleeve Polo shirt is in an engineered knit with tonal black Three Stripes running down the sleeve from the collar to the cuff; with a ribbed collar, three button placket and an adidas SPEZIAL woven logo patch.

The apparel collection also includes lightweight Heswall shorts, super-soft Hartcliffe pocket t-shirt and McLoughlin SPEZIAL box logo t-shirt.

Spring Summer 2020 SPZL accessories include the Meanwood Bucket Hat, a two-pack of Mod Trefoil socks and a new iteration of the SPEZIAL beach towel in the season's collegiate orange with graphics inspired by archival adidas shoe box artwork.

We are open and shipping as normal, offering free UK delivery on orders over £80, all footwear will be picked and packed with our usual care and attention and delivered boxed.
