ADIDAS | Spezial AW20 Chapter 1

A selection of terrace inspired contemporary apparel and footwear hybrids that people have come to expect from adidas Spezial.

Adidas Spezial makes it’s welcome return for Autumn/Winter 2020. As always, this is a huge date in the diary for most adi-heads out there, & one we always look forward to here aboard the good ship Wellgosh.

Recent years have seen us launch the range with in store events alongside the likes of Bez (Happy Mondays) & the main man himself Mr. Gary Aspden. Unfotunatley, with social distancing measures in place, right now we can’t really invite you all to the shop for a good chinwag & a good few bears to loosen the purse strings to celebrate the release, so we’re releasing all the Spezial collection (footwear & clothing) on our launches.wellgosh.com platform.

Check out what’s dropping below:

The footwear releases are led by the HRMNY SPZL – a lesser known release from the original Torsion range that was/is revered by German football fans. Based on the adidas Harmony, it was originally a women’s shoe whose silhouette has been reworked by adidas Spezial into a wider men’s fitting and given a complete overhaul on the colour palette and materials.

Next up is the Newrad SPZL – a brand new leisure shoe in light brown nubuck built on the Bermuda tooling and branded with an embossed ‘Mod Trefoil’ patch on the lateral side.

To keep the fans of court shoes happy we have the Alderley SPZL – another new adidas Spezial hybrid that takes the foundations of its design from the mesh and foxing of the Rod Laver Vintage but heads into new territory with a distinctive perforated leather toe, ‘U’ mesh insert in the perforated tongue and heel guard.

Lastly, Spezial takes the adilette slides and adds its own identity to these adidas icons with the debossed Mod Trefoil relief and Spezial branding.

The apparel sees the return of an adidas Spezial mainstay with the SL Haslingden jacket. The Haslingden is widely regarded as one of Spezial’s most popular jackets ever and this classic 4 pocket jacket walking jacket returns in black. This latest version is constructed in a super lightweight fabric (hence the SL name) with tonal 3 stripe branding. 

The second jacket is the ST11 – a newly developed jacket that comes in a bold gold colourway and. takes inspiration from the silhouettes of the Standard Training of the late 70s/early 80s but updates the colour, materials and fit.

To support these pieces is a brand carrier Mod Trefoil sweat in a chalk white Terry and a basic white logo carrier tee. There is a tapered navy track pant that uses the same cotton with recycled PES blend pique material as the New Order track top as well as a trace green cargo short in the classic ‘Aldwych’ fit. A multi panel, peaked, logo cap in a warm beige with adjustable fit and three vent holes finishes the look.
