It's long overdue, but adidas are to bring over 600 pairs of rare, deadstock, vintage and re-issue trainers to London to be exhibited in the Hoxton Gallery this month.
Spezial is the brainchild of Gary Aspden, a passionate adidas fan since the 1970’s who has gone onto become a consultant for the brand. Starting with his personal collection as a foundation for the exhibition, he contacted influential collectors from all walks of life to pull together a showcase of rare vintage and re-issue trainers. All followers of the three stripes should have this well on their radar.
The exhibition takes place at the Hoxton Gallery, 9 Kingsland Road, 19-27 July
