What is adidas Spezial?

Let’s start with the basics, just in case any newbies are getting into the collection for the first time. 

Released way back in 1979 (which was actually the same year as their iconic Copa Mundial boots), the adidas Spezial was initially launched as a handball shoe. Sporting the classic three stripes along its side, the Spezial quickly became famous for its durability and robustness out on the court - not to mention its pretty impressive comfort. 

Featuring premium suede materials, incredible cushioning and enough gorgeous colourways to fill any sneakerhead's wardrobe, it wasn’t long until the Spezial moved into the fashion world. Thanks to its irresistible retro vibes, these trainers offer the quintessential adidas look, with a timeless design which basically suits just about anyone. 

Now more than 40 years since its initial release, the adidas Spezial is still turning heads and making headlines. In a nutshell, this is the perfect shoe for any lovers of vintage footwear, and the brand-new 2020 collection is expected to sell very quickly indeed. Not to be sniffed at. 


adidas Spezial SS20 Collection - What’s Included?

There are five new trainers included in the new adidas Spezial collection. Each one of them features the classic adidas style, offering the kind of simplistic design which hits all the right nostalgia buttons. These are the adidas Zurro, Elland, Lotherton, Ashurst and Training 76 SPZL.

Honestly, they’re all absolutely gorgeous. I mean, just look at them...

When Are They Released?

The adidas Spezial SS20 collection will officially release on 12th June 2020

They were initially supposed to release a little earlier in the year, but have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, if anything this has only served to build the hype and anticipation, and you’ll have to be pretty damn quick on the buzzer if you want to get hold of a pair.
