adidas Originals x Spezial
adidas Originals and Gary Aspden - the collector and fan of the renowned German brand - keep on working together.
Gary Aspden is a well-known collector of adidas and at the same time peripatetic consultant of the German brand. He became really famous in 2013 - during the ‘SPEZIAL’ exhibition, held in the showroom of Hoxton Gallery, London. The British man Aspden managed to unite adidas collectors from all over the world and attracted attention of the German label’s directorship.
«I do not collaborate with adidas, I am of adidas» - says the designer, presenting the new capsule collection adidas Originals x SPEZIAL. However, Aspden doesn’t really like calling himself a ‘designer’, insisting on the word ‘curator’. By the way, Aspden owns a collection of more than 800 pairs of adidas trainers, and the biggest problem for him was to find a showroom which had enough space to display all of his footwear.
WHAT WE HAVE

All of them are made of high quality premium materials, such as leather, suede or nubuck, and have durable sole with adidas patented technologies.
