Handball got a new lease of life when the 2012 Olympics was on, but one aspect of handball has never really gone out of style – the Adidas Spezial trainers.
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.

A low key reissue, but certainly an eye-catching one – the return of the Adidas Spezial trainers in a black colourway.
A shoe from 1979 that was designed for indoor sports, it's a lightweight number, this time with a suede upper and 'laser yellow' accents on the leather three stripe branding, throwing in a contrasting heel piece plus a thick gum sole to finish things off.
See the shoe from a reverse angle over the page. All sizes available, £54.99 is the price.
