Embracing Adidas' signature three stripes, Gary Aspden lives and breathes the Adidas brand through a stockpiled collection of vintage rarities mounting over a thousand pairs in total. Gary Aspden's archive of Adidas has become something of a touring project showcasing not only his own but collectors pieces under the 'SPEZIAL' banner. To celebrate the ongoing project Adidas Originals have collaborated with Gary under the SPEZIAL moniker to breathe life into models of yesteryear with the first piece the Hand-Burg Spezial. Reminiscent to a pair Gary had tracked down in Tokyo in the 90's, this Spezial comes to us in a rich and creamy leather upper that runs through to the lining before sitting atop the Hamburg's deep toned gum sole. Each pair is finished off with a glossed golden branding accenting against the white base.
The Hand-Burg Spezial will release this Saturday the 25th of September at our Level 1/15 McKillop Street location with any remaining pairs releasing online from 12pm the same day. Sizes US8 through to US12 will be available for $140, just remember to get in quick as numbers are extremely limited, and until Saturday, we'll leave you with a detailed look at this latest collaborative release from Adidas Originals.
