adidas Handball Spezial

Debuted as a handball shoe in its homeland, Germany, back in the late 1970s, the adidas Handball Spezial trainer swiftly earned acclaim as the preferred choice among players from Germany, Holland, and Scandinavia. Designed to meet the demands of fast-paced handball courts with its sturdy design capable of enduring heavy friction and sharp turns, it's no surprise that the Spezial silhouette maintained its momentum into the casual subcultures of the 1980s.

Now revived from the adidas archives for the foreseeable future, the Spezial continues to offer retro appeal like no other with its reworked thick gum sole, reinforced heel, and old-school charm that’s reminiscent of the late 70s and early 80s football terrace era. It’s truly enjoying its moment in the spotlight, all thanks to the rise in celebrity and influencer culture, which has taken this season's sneaker trends by storm. Expect a mix of neutral and vibrant colour palettes, all complemented by the signature 3-Stripes and Spezial logo adorning the sidewalls. 

You don't have to be into sports to enjoy the Spezial; it’s extremely lightweight, versatile, and simplistic in all the right ways, guaranteed to take you from your 9-5 to drinks with friends.
