Bottom line

The Adidas Munchen Super SPZL has been glorified as it flaunts an old trainer look with contemporary comfort. The quality materials display clean finishing giving rise to a stylish and timeless look without surrendering its affordability. Despite few reported sizing problems, this model is generally a strongly recommended pair by the majority of the respondents.

User reviews:

This unisex pair is offered in men's sizing from 4 to 11 US in medium width. Women are advised to grab 1.5 sizes down their regular shoe size when buying in men's sizing. Example, if a lady's shoe size is 7, she is recommended to buy a 5.5 in men's sizing for a cozier and secured fit.

In addition, the lace-up fastening system delivers a personalized and snug fit. Meanwhile, the perforations on the toe box boost the ventilation suitable for strolling during the warm days. Also, the EVA sockliner provides lightweight cushioning for all-day comfort.

The low-top Adidas München Super SPZL displays a modernized retro silhouette from the City Series. This round-toe kick features a soft suede upper offered in two upbeat colorways - the Intense Green and Collegiate Blue.  This noticeable kick is rested atop a white rubber midsole with nice gumsole to show its sports-inspired heritage.

For added distinctive style, the brand inserted few brandings around the kick - embossed branding on the insole and heel and logo patch woven on the tongue that matches the blue hit on the gumsole. The heel guard also adds a beautiful finishing style while boosting the durability.

For a more authentic vibe, this model comes with an extra pair of laces with vintage-style similar to the OG Gazelle launched in the late 80s. Most wearers style this kick with their jeans, shorts, joggers, and ankle pants.

The Adidas München Super SPZL is launched in colorways that are admittedly hard to ignore. Many lauded the striking green and vibrant blue which attracted several buyers in adding this kick to their collections. In fact, Liam Gallagher, a famous songwriter and singer, was seen sporting this kick even before it was launched and he proclaimed that this is his favorite in the Spezial collection.

The Adidas Spezial collection was formed in 2014 by two of the most passionate Adidas collectors, namely Mike Chetcuti and Gary Aspden. They concentrated in unearthing several silhouettes from the archives and re-engineered it for the current market.

In 2018, The Spezial series launched a line with bright colors and graphics based on the warehouse parties in the White Isle in Ibiza during the late 80s. Those parties were flooded with euphoric music; thus tagging the Ibiza as the world's clubbing Mecca. The Adidas Spezial team stirred some profiles from the archives and created exceptional footwear iterations inspired from the rave season.

Included in the 'Acid Winter' Fashion Week 2018 Special Collection is the München Super SPZL that was based in the Adidas City Series collection unveiled in the 70s. The Adidas Munchen was named after the European city Münich, the capital of Bavaria in Germany. It was initially launched in 1979 as indoor training footwear and turned as an everyday casual kick for its style and versatility.

The classic Adidas München earned popularity for its mesh rear blended with the suede material from the midfoot down to the front area. This pair also used a thick sole and a suede T-Toe overlay for durability and style.

Because of its stylish and timeless look, the Originals sub-brand from Adidas decided to re-introduce this silhouette into the market. The brand re-released it in 2016 which thrilled several sneakerheads and many retro kick collectors. In 2018, the Adidas Spezial team settled in including the Munchen in their Fashion Week 2018 collection.

  • This iteration has foxing graduation with a range of 18 mm to 30 mm.
  • It has the iconic, retro-inspired serrated signature 3-Stripe on the sides.
