The latest model is the lead colorway for adidas’ iconic City Series Fall/Winter 2019 season. Dressed in green and red, the color palette is inspired by the Red Rose of Lancashire and is named after the town where Gary Aspden grew up. Additionally “Blackburn” has been embossed in gold detailing on the lateral sides of the sneakers, while Three Stripes and Nightsafe co-branding can be found on the insole.
Interested sneakerheads will be able to get their hands on a pair of the adidas Blackburn SPZL “Nightsafe” edition exclusively from the exhibition. Only 200 pairs will be available and all proceeds will go towards the local youth charity Nightsafe, which aims to support homeless and vulnerably housed young people in the Blackburn with Darwen area. A regular retail version will also release at select adidas retailers and online. The sneakers will be priced at £100 GBP (approximately $124 USD).
The adidas SPEZIAL Exhibition will launch at the Cotton Exchange as part of the British Textile Biennial in Blackburn on Friday, October 4 and run until Sunday, October 20. Over 1,000 pairs of adidas models past and present will be on display along with the special edition Blackburn SPZL.
