Fit & Sizing
The Adidas Indoor Comp SPZL is a low-top shoe with sizes available from men's US 6 to 13 in D Standard width. Since it is exclusive to men's sizing, the ladies are advised to grab a pair 1.5 to 2 sizes smaller than their standard sizes as an approximate sizing equivalent. This Adidas shoe fits true to size for most wearers.
As designed with a sturdy leather upper with suede reinforcements, wearers are assured with a supportive and protective fit. The low-cut construction permits flexible ankle movement, while the lace-up closure allows a customizable or personalized fit.
Adidas Indoor Comp SPZL History
The Adidas Spezial series, which was founded in 2014, focuses on bringing back classic Adidas silhouettes from the brand's archives and reworking them with contemporary upgrades to better suit the modern-day sneaker market. The great minds behind this famous Three Stripes line are led by Gary Aspden.
In early 2018, the Adidas Spezial introduced its Summer of Love collection, which pays homage to the late ‘80s warehouse parties in the White Isle in Ibiza. It was a massive success that a follow-up collection was made only a few months after called the "Acid Winter" collection.
The Adidas Indoor Comp SPZL released on September 7th, 2018 as part of the 1st drop of the Adidas Spezial "Acid Winter" Fall/Winter 2018 Collection. It dropped alongside the lime green reissue of the Adidas Munchen Super SPZL (which is based on the Adidas Munchen Super designed for the 1972 German Olympic team), the Adidas Lowertree SPZL (a new silhouette based on the Marathon Competition), and the Adidas Punstock SPZL among others. The entire collection also took inspirations from music and the warehouse rave parties during the late ‘80s throughout the ‘90s. The launch coincides with Acid House's 30th Anniversary.
Adidas SPZL and Gary Aspden once again dug deep into the Adidas archives and reworked some of these iconic Three Stripes shoes with fresh colorways suited for the season. The Adidas Indoor Comp SPZL, in particular, features premium leather and suede upper that shadows several Adidas silhouettes that were popular during the rave culture in the ‘80s and the ‘90s. The retro Adidas window branding is also seen, as well as the iconic Three Stripes but updated with serrated edges. Completing its retro façade is a translucent gum rubber outsole.
