The adidas SPEZIAL event in Manchester on Thursday evening was not only The World’s Most Northernest Exhibition Ever, a meeting of the internet’s worst-behaved scallys and an opportunity to see some mega-rare trainers from adidas’ history, it was also the launchpad for adidas originals X SPEZIAL, a capsule collection curated by Gary Aspden, that harks back to the brand’s rich European heritage.
Gary took us through some of the finer points of SPEZIAL in his underground lair in Farringdon, London a few weeks back.
