Adidas Columbia SPZL, Padiham SPZL Brown, Lacombe SPZL, ZX280 and Handball Kreft all release on the 23rd March 2018. The Adidas Spezial story continues …….

A list of stockists to buy can be found at the foot of this page. Release times for individual supplier will be update closer to the release date. 

Without doubt the standout inclusion in this drop for fans of the adidas Spezial collection, is the long awaited return of the Adidas Columbia. Simply put, it’ a terrace classic…..

Priced at £119.95, the demand prior to release, possibly hasn’t been seen since the inclusion of the GT Manchester SPZL a few years ago.

But, for us, the Padiham SPZL, finished in Brown Suede is the first pair on our shopping list. A new design, albeit following the classic silhouettes from the archives, and not to dissimilar to the Canadian Tobacco.  A low profile suede shoe, with a short toe box and a dimpled tongue. What’s not to like…… £84.95

Next up is the Lacombe SPZL, first introduced to us back in 2016 in the SS16 Spezial collection. Finished in premium, super soft leather, in our opinion, you will struggle to find a better summer Adidas shoe…. a must have.  Normally the sizing on these is big, so may be an idea to get half a size below your normal size.  £99.95

Then it’s the ZX280 SPZL, a reissue of a classic retro runner from the 1980’s adidas archives. A 1:1 reissue with plenty of vintage detail. Including optional eye stays for custom lacing and vintage trefoil logo on the tongue. The suede overlays are finished with premium pig skin suede. A proper retro runner …… £99.95

And last but by no means least, the Handball Kreft SPZL. In a continuation from the Adidas Handball reissued towards the end of 2017, the Handball Kreft is now here. Finished in a stunning pig skin Royal Blue suede. £89.95
