Another City reissue, another Size? 10th anniverary exclusive – this time the Adidas Glasgow trainers and tracktop.
It follows in the steps of other sought-after Adidas anniversary reissues (I'm sure we all remember the chaos of the Adidas Manchester reissue), with the same number of Glasgows being offered as the Manchester – 500 of the tracktop, 500 of the trainers.
After the chaos of the Adidas Manchester launch, Size? has obviously taken note and has a new way of distributing its latest Adidas limited edition reissue – the Adidas Dublin trainers and tracktop.
Like the Manchester, the Dublin is another reissue of the city range in very limited numbers – just 300 of the jacket and 500 of the trainers, both in an eyecatching blue and orange colourway with gum sole, numbered detailing and gold city branding.
if you want to secure them, get to your nearest Size? store as early as you can on June 19th. If that's not possible, Size? is doing a ballot for online sales. Sign up and if you get drawn, you'll be offered the chance to buy both items via Paypal. You've got until 9am on 16th June to get in that particular draw.
Find out more at the Size? website
As some of you might recall, the retailer Size? is selling classic, limited edition Adidas Manchester trainers and tracktops for its 10th anniversary, some of which were sold instores over the weekend, the rest being sold online this morning.
If, like me, you were one of the people trying to buy some, you'll probably have found a frustrating and in the end, almost shambolic procedure. Being informed there was no stock at the end of the billing procedure (after previously securing some online), even getting a cancellation email after an order was confirmed. Not good at all.
But where there's demand, there is always supply – and a number of the lucky few have decided to stick their (not very) prized possessions straight onto the eBay website. So if you have money to spare, sellers are already asking anything between £100 and £300 for a pair of the £69.99 trainers. Yes, really. If you want to browse what's currrently there, follow our link to the trainers currently being sold.
Adidas Manchester trainers and tracktops on eBay
Remember the reissued Adidas London track top from last week? Well, there's an even more exclusive release from further up north – the limited edition Adidas Manchester trainers and track top.
It's part of the Size? 10th anniversary celebrations (so only available there) and certain to be in very short supply, with just 500 of each item being made, each numbered for added exclusivity. See the numbering details over the page – it's a bit cool.
Not ideal if you're from the red half of Manchester (as the design looks to be predominantly sky blue), but maybe you can console yourself with the red detailing. No price as yet, but expect them offered for sale from April 17th 2010.
