Following a tip-off about a store stacked ceiling-high with vintage adidas products, brand consultant Gary Aspden assembled a team of fellow Three-Stripes fanatics -- including musician Ian Brown and noted adidas collectors Robert Brooks and Mike Chetcuti -- and traveled to Buenos Aires. The store, located in the back streets of the Argentine capital, was shut down for two days, allowing the team to go through the inventory amassed by shopkeeper Carlos Ruiz, who's dedicated his life to the store for the last 34 years. The exploratory trip was documented by photographer Neil Bedford and filmmaker Greg Bond, with this short film, entitled "Sole Searching in South America" and produced by SHOWstudio, presaging an adidas x SPEZIAL exhibition as part of Design Manchester 2014. The corresponding adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection will release on October 25.
