Over the years, the Spezial sneaker has become one of the most legendary shoes by Adidas. First released in 1979 as a handball shoe, it was designed to be robust enough to deal with the sharp movements and heavy friction that handball footwear endures. Following the casual football movement in the 80s, the Spezial sneaker gradually became a permanent fixture in streetwear fashion.

The Spezial’s simple design and durable build helped cement it as an Adidas icon. Built with a suede upper for comfort and flexibility on the handball courts, these shoes are ideal for all-day casual wear. The upper is treated to give a worn vintage look, and the contrast 3-Stripes and heel patch give the shoe that instantly recognisable branding that Adidas fans love. A reinforced heel panel protects the shoes from wear and hear, and underfoot the distinctive gum sole creates unbeatable traction to keep you steady on the courts. Each element of the Spezial is crafted and considered. It’s a shoe that’s steeped in style.

Since its original release, the Adidas Spezial sneaker has been re-imagined hundreds of times. Each Spezial launch is always hotly anticipated and quick to sell out, highlighting the popularity of this effortlessly minimalist shoe. Every new range takes inspiration from the archives, reviving the classic Spezial silhouette with modern influences from around the world.

Living up to its legendary status, the Spezial was the subject of a huge exhibition in Manchester. The exhibition was the brainchild of Gary Aspen, a diehard Adidas fan who has been responsible for securing several collaborations for Adidas in the past. The Spezial exhibition showcased 600 pairs of rare collaborations and one-offs from all over the world, giving fans a chance to view an incomplete history of this iconic shoe.
