Nic Galway talks adidas Originals Tubular adidas Originals are smashing it at the minute, aren’t they? With all those lovely tracksuits that the man from Darwen made, those trainers that the really polite German fella and the internet drawing bloke have done, and re-issues named after European

A few months back Nike SB approached us to showcase their upcoming Flash Pack, a collection that takes key SB pieces and adding a touch of reflective to make the wearer more visible when skating at night. Safer while skating without looking like you bought some activewear from Sports Direct? Great
The adidas SPEZIAL event in Manchester on Thursday evening was not only The World’s Most Northernest Exhibition Ever, a meeting of the internet’s worst-behaved scallys and an opportunity to see some mega-rare trainers from adidas’ history, it was also the launchpad for adidas originals X SPEZIAL, a capsule collection curated by Gary Aspden, that harks back to the brand’s rich European heritage.
Gary took us through some of the finer points of SPEZIAL in his underground lair in Farringdon, London a few weeks back.

Sometimes a brand comes along and every part of it just clicks for you. You understand what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, and ultimately that you want a piece of it. ICNY is that brand for me, and it’s really got me questioning why nobody has done this kinda thing sooner
