Editor’s Notes: adidas Originals has unveiled the second drop of its SS19 Spezial collection, headed up by adidas collector and archivist Gary Aspden. Some adidas staples have been reinterpreted for a modern audience. The drop continues the Original Collector series, focusing on renowned adidas collector Robert Brooks. Brooks’ personal collection is used as a reference point, featuring running styles favored by London adidas heads.
The main piece in the collection is the Silverbirch SPZL, which is inspired by the adidas Denver and references the area in London where Brooks grew up. The other footwear offering is the GLXY SPZL, which is based on the old-school Galaxy and the more modern Earlham sneaker.
The apparel includes cargo shorts, a polo shirt, a crew neck, and an overshirt. Check out the entire collection in the gallery above.
