After dealing with a few logistical nightmares, adidas Originals finally opened the doors to its #Spezial Exhibition last Thursday at Hoxton Gallery in Shoreditch, London. Curated by Gary Aspden, himself a long time sneakerhead who works as a consultant for adidas, a total 650 pairs of the rarest adidas Originals were flown in for the event, making it one of the world’s most prized sneaker collection, at least temporarily. Everything from some of the earliest prototype creations to one-off signed kicks by N*E*R*D*, Noel Gallagher, Rum DMC, Naomi Campbell, Flea of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and more… To see the exhibition first hand, the Trefoil Brand invited Ian Brown, Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels, Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, Maverick Sabre, Jefferson Hack, Mr. Hudson, along with Pam Hogg, Lulu Kennedy, Jo Hartley (This is England), and Ian Brody (Lightning Seeds) to the opening party. However, you don’t have to be famous to see the collection. Simply swing by Hoxton Gallery for a visit from now till July 27th. The gallery opens daily from noon to 7 pm and admission is absolutely free.
