Fit & Sizing
The Adidas Harwood SPZL is an eye-catching silhouette that both men and women can enjoy, with sizes ranging from 6.5 to 13. The low-top sneaker’s length is based on men’s measurements, but women should have no problem finding their right fit as long as they follow the general rule of size conversion which is to go down a size and a half from their usual foot measurement when trying on men’s shoes.
The Harwood SPZL features a lace-up closure for adjusting fit.
Adidas Harwood SPZL Style
Rock the street-style look magnificently with the clean and hip lines of the Adidas Harwood SPZL. Men can wear the low-top sneaker with dark jeans and a military-style jacket. You can also keep it sporty by wearing the shoe with a tracksuit. Women, meanwhile, can strut on the streets with ripped jeans, a posh color-blocked knit sweater, and their Harwood SPZL.
Loyal followers of the SPZL series would not be disappointed with the Adidas Harwood SPZL. The running-inspired silhouette has a clean and sporty look that is elevated by the interesting hits of red along the suede accents on the sneaker’s heel counter and the textile fabric on the famous Adidas Stripes. The same red shade can also be seen on the split-color midsole, adding a nice contrast to the off-white hue of the shoe. Fans of the Adidas Seaside would also be pleased to know that the Harwood has faithfully recreated the OG down to the last detail.
Adidas Harwood SPZL History
The Adidas Harwood SPZL comes from the impressive Spezial collection of Adidas—a line of heritage shoes from the brand’s archives which are re-worked to produce new footwear with better materials, tech, and comfort. The man behind this collection is footwear collector, Gary Aspden whose 2013 Adidas sneaker exhibition in London spurred the creation of the line.
The first shoes from the SPZL line were released in 2014 with only four models included. 2015 had a much bigger crop with 13 new silhouettes while in 2016, ten models came out including the Harwood SPZL. Produced for the AW16 collection, the Harwood was modeled after the Seaside, a running shoe that came out in 1988. The Harwood had a reflective arch, contrast heel underlay, and hits of red accents on the Stripes, heel, and midsole.
