Adidas Jogger SPZL History
For the past years, Adidas has been serious in improving their lifestyle collection by collaborating with various athletes, artists, and personalities. They have also been victorious in reviving archived collections, such as Stan Smith and the Superstar, and creating special collections.
One of the many special collections of the Three Stripes is called the Spezial, which was started by Gary Aspden. He is one of the brand’s biggest aficionado who has gone to various areas in South America to hunt down relics of the history of the Three Stripes. Adidas volunteered Aspden to curate the Spezial collection and will further dig the brand’s archive to create a new design based on the vintage models.
In the Summer/Spring 2017 Spezial collection, the Adidas drew inspiration from the British casual and Jamaican reggae cultures. The brand created a collection which includes apparel such as premium SPEZIAL Tracksuit, military jacket, long sleeve football shirt and polo shirt. In addition, some of the resurrected shoe models in this collection are the Atlanta SPZL, the Brisbane SPZL, the Garwen SPZL and the Jogger SPZL.
The Jogger was released in the 70s and was resurrected by the Spezial collection. Adidas re-imagined it and tweaked a bit for the current market while maintaining some of its iconic elements.
