adidas SPEZIAL AW'17 - 2nd drop

Only several weeks after adidas SPZL AW'17 collection's release, German sneakers designer shows ace from their sleeve - another "special" iteration from their archives.

This time adidas issued a supplement for their autumn-winter collection. It's four models of sneakers - TRX SPZL, Super Tobacco SPZL, Lacombe SPZL and Intack SPZL. All of them comprise a homage of the German designers to 80s and the general idea of "casual" style. Two of those projects - in my opinion most interesting ones - we will have a closer look at.

The first model - TRX SPZL makes an archival reinterpretation of adidas TRX sneakers. Being more precise - "TRX runner" kicks, which were originally manufactured in Germany in years 1984-86 and dedicated mostly for moderate to heavy runners. The "Supplier Colour's" blue and white colorway is in its most part a reproduction of the original. The upper on the other hand is made identically as the original - with suede and nylon. An outsole with tread, heavily reistant to attrition, was also added. A significant difference between an archival OG model and the edition disucced here is the midsole. German designers decided to make a "sole swap" with first ever adidas TRX model from 1978. The very same thing was done in all models from the first SPZL AW’17 collection drop.

adidas Super Tobacco SPZL on the other hand, resulted from diving deep into the archives of the German brand for an inspiration. Timelessness of 70s and 80s vibe is this sneakers' line's theme in general. In this case the inspiration was an originally training and recreation sneaker manufactured in France. Now, with a simple sporty design mingled with materials of the best of quality and the result fits into urban "casual" trends perfectly. The "three stripes" designers found their greatest inspiration in adidas Bermuda model. The new release's elements such as rubber outsole or additional consolidation in the shoe's front.

adidas Spezial AW'17 had it global premiere on 6.10 6.10. All of this post's protagonists you can find here.
