adidas Spezial is all about giving new life to designs from the brand’s archive that were thought long lost. The adidas SPZL branding stays quietly in the background and leaves the spotlight to the mostly very understated clothing and footwear pieces. For the Fall/Winter 2023 season, adidas Spezial collaborated with Ireland’s soccer legend Roy Keane to present a narrative of contrast and harmony brought to life through snapshots of the former professional football player. This latest collection is made up of a selection of archive designs handpicked by Gary Aspden, which have been brought into the present day, thanks to a contemporary makeover. Never too much over-the-top, the topic is approached with a down-to-earth attitude. adidas Spezial is a loving homage to the less prominent silhouettes and timeless, well-grounded colorways from adidas archives, brought to life with an unparalleled eye for detail.
