Take An On Feet Look At The adidas SL80 SPZL
The adidas SL80 SPZL trainer harks back to the 3 stripes archive and a previously unreleased trainer from the celebrated SL series.
Dropping as part of the latest adidas SPEZIAL SS19 collection, Gary Aspden and adidas revive the SL80 trainer from the 3 stripes archives, a style which up until now had never been released. The original SL series started with the SL72, introduced for the Olympic Games in Munich in 1972, a notable silhouette for its grippy outsole with SL an actual abbreviation for ‘Super Light’. The classic running series became a firm favourite on the terraces throughout the 80s and has continued to be a key style among casual 3 stripes collectors.
As with anything SPEZIAL its usually got some form of archive inspiration. This latest SL80 SPZL trainer is no different. Revived from the archives, the SL80 up until now was never actually released, maybe adidas got too caught up in the City series? Who knows, but now its back thanks to Gary Asdpen and the his exclusive SPEZIAL line. Revived in a striking collegiate gold and solar orange colourway the SL80 SPZL features mesh uppers with suede overlays, leather 3 stripes and the all important traction style outsole.
The adidas SL80 SPZL will be launching from adidas stockists wordwide such as 43einhalb.com from Friday 8th March 2019. In other recent sneaker news you can also check out the 30th Anniversary New Balance 1500 trainer.
