Here the final recap of this great exhibition opening:
On October 24, 2014, the adidas SPEZIAL exhibition opened it’s doors in Manchester. Collectors, fans and stars like Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder, Stone Roses bassist Mani, musician Bill Ryder Jones and actor/electronic artist Goldie, came to see the impressive setup.
Curated by Gary Aspden, the presentation includes over 800 shoes from various collectors, spanning the late ‘60s to the advent of Boost technology. Within the exhibition are areas displaying collaborations with fashion and musical heroes; and full runs of the fabled Equipment era. Additionally, there are some superb trainers found by Aspden and friends on a recent excursion to Argentina. Because I shot too many pictures to put in one post, part two will follow tomorrow
