adidas SPEZIAL FW19

by Suede Store on October 02, 2019

A collection inspired by the styling of Northern England.

Featuring the rst appearance of the Blackburn SPZL, a silhouette inspired and named after the Lancashire town in which Gary Aspden spent much of his youth and host to the latest Spezial archive footwear exhibition.

adidas Originals unveils the new adidas SPEZIAL collection of apparel and footwear for FW19. Inspired by winter on the terraces of British football grounds and consisting of utilitarian and hard-wearing product designed to combat the elements, the latest SPEZIAL release blends adidas’ rich heritage in sportswear with modern technology, tooling, and fabrics. The earthy toned Belthorn anorak and the Rossendale parka (a modern update on the classic shtail parka) that melds durability and style, are the standout garments of the collection. Ac-companying them is the Spezial Liner vest, which ts seamlessly into the Belthorn anorak as a water-resistant liner, subtly branded long-sleeve and short-sleeve t-shirt options, and a pack of two pairs of simple Spezial cotton socks. The footwear for this season features the SL80 SPZL, a one to one reproduction of the SL80 in its classic navy/gold colourway, an update of the winter-ready adidas Winterhill SPZL in adi-tex, and a premium leather Hoddlesden SPZL, which fuses vintage DNA from other classic adidas leisure shoes that have formed part of previous SPZL collections. The footwear offering is topped off by the release of the Blackburn SPZL, a shoe named after, and inspired by, the Lancashire town in which Gary Aspden spent much of his youth. Most of the European city se-ries shoes would use colourways that were in some way relevant to the cities they were named after, the colourway of the Blackburn SPZL is no exception inspired by the green and red of the rose of Lancashire. To launch this latest collection, an adidas SPEZIAL exhibition will show-case the evolution of adidas footwear past and present in Blackburn’s magni cent Cotton Ex-change, as the headliner of the British Textile Biennial.
