I’m an Adidas man. Always have been, probably always will be. From my AdidasÂ Kick andÂ Rochester trainersÂ in the late 80s, through the iconicÂ Sambas in the 90sÂ via theÂ classic World Cup football boots, the classic three stripes have been a constantÂ feature of my shoe cupboard from my teenage years to the brink of my 40th birthday.
The latest addition to my Adidas history are another fine pair of Adidas OriginalÂ trainers from Infinities Menswear. The retro look suede navy/sky blueÂ Adidas Originals Spezial ArgentinaÂ are crafted from pigskin suede. The blue upper is complemented by a sky blue leather contrast heel trim and 3 stripes. Â The trainer also includes the gold foil Spezial call out to the side, gold Trefoil print on the heel trim, gold Adidas print on the tongue and an angular dimpled gum sole unit carrying the famousÂ Adidas branding.
WithoutÂ wishing to soundÂ too much like Alan Partridge describing his favourite leather driving gloves, the Spezials are stylish, comfortable and perfect footwear to go with the gentleman’s casual denims; whether down the boozer or on the terraces.
