Vintage, dead stock, collaboration… you name it, they’ve got it. In a display of rare designs hoarded by fans, lovers and collectors, the Adidas ‘Spezial’ exhibtion will document how the iconic brand blossomed from sixties sports shoe to current pop culture couture.
Thought up by Adidas consultant Gary Aspden, ‘Spezial’ combines his personal collection of trainers with sneakers signed by the likes of Noel Gallagher, Run DMC, NERD, Lilly Allen, Ian Brown, Nas, Eminem and Public Enemy. It will showcase stories and experiences from a global pool of Adidas enthusiasts – designers, musicians and aficionados – and there will even be a limited edition book of footwear fancy. Worth a hop, skip, and a high-top to visit. Kitty Knowles
‘Spezial’ will be a free exhibition held at the Hoxton Gallery between July 19-27.
