Adidas Spezial Manchester Recap Pt I

Here the final recap of this great exhibition opening:

On October 24, 2014, the adidas SPEZIAL exhibition opened it’s doors 
in Manchester. Collectors, fans and stars like Happy Mondays frontman 
Shaun Ryder, Stone Roses bassist Mani, musician Bill Ryder Jones and 
actor/electronic artist Goldie, came to see the impressive setup. 

Curated by Gary Aspden, the presentation includes over 800 shoes from 
various collectors, spanning the late ‘60s to the advent of Boost 
Within the exhibition are areas displaying collaborations with fashion 

and musical heroes; and full runs of the fabled Equipment era. 
Additionally, there are some superb trainers found by Aspden and 
friends on a recent excursion to Argentina
Because I shot too many pictures to put in one post, part two will 
follow tomorrow

New Balance Museum

During the latest installment of Sneakerness Warsaw event, New Balance 
Poland teamed up with Suede&Mesh and opened the “New Balance 
Museum” – exhibition that showcased their most iconic models from the 
last 50 years. For the very first time polish fans had the opportunity to 
get educated about brand history and heritage in that way. 
Thanks to Europe’s finest vintage New Balance collectors, Mike Sekinger 
and Tiago Escada Ramos, this experience have become thrilling not just 
for the NB aficionados. There was a chance to see one of the first shoes 
dated back to the 1960’s, few of those without the infamous “N” logo on 
the side panels or even never officially released special make ups 
produced for the NB affiliated running clubs or runners. 
European collectors’ grails from Flimby factory such as first versions of 
renowned M1500 or Trailbuster models were also on display.

Quote's Collection

Its not long now, until Quote and Peter O'Toole relese their new book and
the Quotoole. For the adidas Blog I visited Quote and photographed some 
of his favorite models. Here's the result

Finally back – adidas ZX550

Today Consortium releases a one-to-one reissue of the original ZX 550.
A shoe that has sadly been missing from adidas’s own archive so far. 
Ensuring the model is treated with the utmost respect, this version stays 
true to the 1986 original in every detail - from the colourway and 
materials used to the unique outsole construction.

Hall of Boost

Yesterday was busy but fun. Assembling the sneaker exhibtion at the 
hall of boost, was a great way to start the day, followed by a quick stop 
at the adidas originals store for a 10min shooting with Vitali Gelwich,
and the WoodWood Store for their up to 60% Sale.

The afternoon back at the hall of boost was flooded with sun and a 
private screening of Bobbito's new film 'Doin' it in the park' was the 
perfect way to end it! 

Today is the last day of the basketball festival
and the programm is hosted by the man himself, Kool Bob love:

3 PM Game starts
4 PM ALBA Team
5 PM Sean Elliot Spurs legendary 32
6 PM "Doin it in the Park" Screening
7.30 PM Final Game
7.45 PM Awarding Ceremony
