The big boys of the trainer world came together on Thursday in Manchester to celebrate the launch of adidas' new SPEZIAL exhibition, showcasing the world's largest collection of rare-as-rocking-horse-shit adidas.
Hundreds upon hundreds of pairs are on show at the gallery for the next two weeks, from limited edition collaborations to never-been-reissued 70s and 80s models, plus rare original versions of timeless classics.
Some of our favourites were trainers we'd never even heard of before, despite being massive adidas heads for as long as we can remember. The depth of the collection is serious, helped in no small part by the adidas crew's recent trip to Argentina.
The event also marked the launch of adidas' new SPEZIAL capsule collection, which went on sale at Oi Polloi the following morning. Some headed straight to the store after the party to get their place in line. When we checked at 2pm Friday the queue was still round the block.
You can catch the exhibition at 7 Dale St, Northern Quarter, Manchester. Here's some pictures from the party.
