adidas SPZL Pre-Spring 2024

The exclusive adidas SPZL Pre-Spring 2024 Collection lands THURSDAY 4TH APRIL 2024! Check out all information about the capsule, as well as each footwear drop, right here.

Ten Years of adidas SPZL

Originally debuting as a handball shoe in the Three-Stripes’ home turf of Germany back in the late 70s, who would have thought that the silhouette would have global influence in 2024? Revived by brand consultant and designer Gary Aspden in 2014, the adidas SPEZIAL line manifested out of a genuine love for the brand, paying homage to its iconic heritage and legacy. Drawing from the archive to inspire contemporary bodies of apparel and footwear, the line has invited a dynamic bunch of collaborators, like Liam Gallagher, C.P Company and Roy Keane. A pretty impressive line-up, right?

And now, celebrating 10 years of the SPZL’s revival, Aspden debuts the Pre-Spring 2024 capsule; exuding a distinctively nostalgic steez. Joining the model’s goated hall-of-fame is none other than actor and artist Ashley Walters. Best known for his role of ‘Dushane’ in global series Top Boy – or from spitting bars in So Solid Crew (if you’re an OG), Walters is a known figure in the creative industry. An experienced influence in and amongst London’s culture, the pairing with adidas SPZL makes a lot of sense. 

“It was such an honour to be a part of this campaign. adidas is a brand that I have always aligned with throughout my career, and the Spezial range has only reinforced my love. 10 years of greatness, inclusivity, and connection with culture. Here’s to many more’, Walters says” – Ashley Walters
