This Spezial release goes bask to the early aughts for a retro of the adidas ZX530 that uses London as its influence. This season’s Spezial releases include some curated by Robert “Brooksy” Brooks, who went into the archive to bring out a few heritage silhouettes from his collection. With a mix of grey mesh and nubuck, the upper features pops of burgundy and “SPZL” branding on the medial panel and tongue tag. A grey and white EVA midsole adds a classic finish to this archival release.
Available on March 8th at 12AM Midnight EST on PackerShoes.com and in-store at Jersey City at 12 Noon EST.
Union LA and adidas unite to celebrate B-Boy culture with two colorways of a Spezial Garwen sneaker and a t-shirt. Using the iron-on letter font made famous by B-boys, the collaborators designed a simple white t-shirt with “UNION SPEZIAL CREW” on the back and a circle logo on the front. For the footwear option, the duo selected the Garwen, a sneaker inspired by the archival 70s leisure shoe called the Brisbane. Its minimal silhouette arrives in a white version with a blue hit on the heel that is lifted from a 1994 edition of the adidas 350. A tan suede model is also available with a classic gum sole to complete the vintage look.
Available on October 26th at 12 Midnight EST on PackerShoes.com and at 12 Noon EST at our Teaneck location.
