Robert Brooks joins us again to go over another vintage adidas model from his coveted collection. This time, Brooks displays an early edition of the adidas Boston — a trainer that pays homage to one of the world’s oldest annual marathons — that is in an extremely rare and unique colorway. Recounting his trip to Barcelona, where he found these Spanish-made beauties, Brooks shows off some of the added quirkiness one normally comes across in the world of sneaker collecting, including an official adidas tag illustrating a pair of men’s dress shoes.

In celebration of the democratic nature of sportswear, Adidas-addict Gary Aspden teamed up with other committed trainer collectors to create a pioneering fan-led exhibition featuring over 600 pairs of footwear, including vintage, deadstock, re-issues and rarities. Filmed during the adidas ‘Spezial’ exhibtion at the Hoxton Gallery, each adidas RETROSPECT video captures the personal story behind each pair. Check back for another adidas ‘Spezial’ RETROSPECT in the next few days.
