For nostalgic (and/or audiophilic) sneakerheads, adidas’ new exhibition Spezial is a sort of Shoreditch-housed Mecca.
The weeklong event brings together 600+ pairs of rarities, reissues and collaborations from the past 50 years of the three stripes.
For us non-fetishists (sorry, you lot), a considerable hook is the collection of signed collaboration samples from an AAA selection of hip-hop stars: Run DMC, Nas, Eminem and Public Enemy, for starters.
Our pick from a smorgasbord of premium kicks? NERD’s take on the (‘90s hit) Micropacer: clean, cool aesthetics – and signed by Pharrell. Nice.
