Gary Aspden is the curator and driving force behind the adidas Spezial exhibition, an annual celebration/exhibition of the ‘brand with the three stripes’ that includes over 600 of the rarest pairs of Adidas on the planet.  This year the exhibition is taking place in Manchester, and to commemorate the event Aspden has worked with Manchester menswear store Oi Polloi and its owner Nigel Lawson to create a new adidas silhouette that is aptly named the, “adidas Ardwick”.  Named after the Manchester suburb Ardwick Park, the Ardwicks are dressed in a fuzzy-haired suede apple green upper (inspired by Lawson’s favorite Lacoste polo) and sit atop a dark brown sole.  These will release in November both in-store at Oi Polloi as well as in the retailer’s online shop.
