Question: where can you find 650 pairs of rare trainers all under one roof? The answer? At the #Spezial exhibition at the Hoxton Gallery in Shoreditch, launched last night by adidas with a star-studded guest list that included Jefferson Hack, Pam Hogg and Lulu Kennedy.
Open for just 9 days, and including signed sneaks from Naomi Campbell, Run DMC, Noel Gallagher, NERD, Public Enemy and Eminem, Spezial is the brainchild of adidas fanatic and consultant Gary Aspden. His person collection provides the foundation to the exhibition which explores “vintage, deadstock, re-issues, collaborations and rarities”, all of which were adored by fans and collectors.
