A classic returns in the form of these 1970s Adidas Handball Spezial trainers. Read more
If you are looking for a new pair of vintage-style Adidas, these Handball Spezial trainers have just been reissued in a blue finish.
A 1970s classic is back on the market in two colours of suede – the Adidas Spezial trainers.
Originally created for that niche sport of handball back in 1979, it was soon picked up for the terraces and has been a pretty popular choice ever since. This reissue has a suede upper, matched with a perforated gum sole for extra cushioning, finished off with gold branding and 'oval' laces.
Take your pick from the navy and Argentina blue above or a blue and white pictured over the page. Both retail for £55.

Another classic trainer returns for a summer makeover – the Adidas Spezial.
As regular readers (and collectors) will know, the Spezial was originally a handball shoe from the 1970s, but has had a far longer life as a casual wear classic over the last 30+ years. This new issue is in two limited edition colours, with the suede upper, gum sole with perforations for extra comfort and gold 'Spezial' detailing.
Get a pair while you can, £55 is the price. See the other colourway over the page.
