adidas SPEZIAL returns for Spring Summer 2019 with a fresh offering of tweaked classics and new styles inspired by the vast adidas back catalogue. This drop sees Gary Aspden & Co launch a never released take on the perennial favourite that is the SL-80. The (A) is based on a piece in the adidas archive in Herzogenaurach which sees an upper that blends sports mesh alongside suede finished in bright orange and black. A 'W' cut features around the toe box as an archive callout as well as a gap between the heel unit and midsole. A common adidas design feature of the past, caused when toolings were switched about. A detail that the SPZL team highlighted with the Glenbuck release last year.
