Gary Aspden’s adidas Spezial division is intrinsically connected to casuals and terrace culture, so featuring Keane as the campaign star is the perfect marriage. For Fall/Winter 2023, adidas Spezial dials up the autumnal vibes with a video that sees Keane take his loyal pet dog, Jet, on a lakeside walk.
Of course, throughout the video, we see Keane wearing the latest-and-greatest designs by Aspden. On top comes a Haslingden Jacket, Moorfield Anorak, Topfield liner, and other layering essentials, while on the bottom we find technical-leaning, gorpy-boi pants tinged with the mod-ish Spezial brush.
However, it’s the footwear that steals the show for Fall/Winter 2023. adidas Spezial presents seven new and reimagined styles, including: the Moscrop 2 SPZL, a revised take on 2022’s Moscrop SPZ, now coming with techy elements like dye cut EVA tooling; the adi-Tex membrane-protected Hiaven SPZL; and of course, the Samba Deco SPZL. Everybody’s favourite shoe of late now comes with a Spezial treatment, coming in either “Black/Green” in homage to ’80s football undertones, or “Brown/White,” per Samba traditions of the 1970s.
Elsewhere, adidas Spezial presents the outdoor-leaning leisure Inverness SPZL staple; the Englewood SPZL which blends elements of the Campus 80 (notably its tooling) with touches of the Galaxy II high top boot; and the Lawkholme SPZL, which is a deconstructed ’80s running shoe at its core.
The adidas Spezial Fall/Winter 2023 collection will be available from November 16 via the adidas Confirmed app and select retailers in limited quantities.
