Adidas SPZL Marks 10 Years with a Leather-Crafted "DECADE" Pack Collection

As Adidas SPZL commemorates its tenth anniversary, the iconic brand is set to launch the DECADE pack, a tribute to the storied history of the Three Stripes. This special collection, curated by the legendary Gary Aspden, reimagines four classic silhouettes from the past decade of Adidas SPZL. The Garwen SPZL, Lacombe SPZL, Blackburn SPZL, and Ardwick SPZL are revisited, each with subtle yet significant updates, encapsulating the essence of Adidas’ heritage while looking ahead to the future.

The Garwen SPZL, a beloved model inspired by the Adidas Brisbane leisure shoe, gets a sophisticated makeover in the DECADE pack. Sporting a light brown, putty, and gum colorway, the shoe’s upper is crafted from premium leather, complemented by suede accents. Perforations on the toe box enhance breathability, while metal Trefoil branding adds a touch of classic elegance. This refreshed version maintains the timeless appeal of the original while offering contemporary enhancements.

The Lacombe SPZL returns in a striking white, chalk white, and dark blue palette, bringing a fresh perspective to this vintage-inspired silhouette. Noteworthy updates include a breathable mesh tongue adorned with patent leather branding, reminiscent of Adidas’ vintage Made in France shoes. Additionally, a suede toe bumper pays homage to the brand’s illustrious history of court shoes. This blend of old and new ensures the Lacombe SPZL remains a favorite among sneaker enthusiasts.

The Blackburn SPZL, a shoe that generated overnight queues upon its initial release in 2019, makes a comeback with a blend of features from its previous iterations, the original Blackburn SPZL and Blackburn Ewood SPZL. This anniversary edition boasts a forest green suede upper, a night navy tongue, and distinctive flock stripes. The design is completed with gold foil prints of the Lancashire rose and the SPZL Mod Trefoil, cementing its status as a must-have for collectors.

Originally introduced in 2014 in collaboration with Manchester’s Oi Polloi, the Ardwick SPZL has become a highly sought-after collector’s item. The 2024 version retains the beloved moss green colorway but features an updated shape, reworked T Toe, and new tongue branding. The foxing, previously black, is now a rich chocolate brown, providing a fresh contrast. The reversed leather upper ensures each pair has unique color variations, staying true to the individualistic nature of the original release.

The highly anticipated SPZL DECADE pack is set to launch on May 24th through select retailers and the Adidas CONFIRMED app. Signups for purchases on CONFIRMED will open on May 18th at 17:00 CET, giving fans ample time to prepare for the drop. As with previous SPZL releases, demand is expected to be high, so enthusiasts are encouraged to act swiftly to secure a pair from this exclusive collection.

In conclusion, the Adidas SPZL DECADE pack is a fitting celebration of ten years of innovation, nostalgia, and unparalleled design. Each silhouette in the collection pays homage to the rich history of Adidas while offering modern updates that ensure these shoes remain relevant and stylish. As the brand looks forward to the next decade, the DECADE pack stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of the Three Stripes and the visionary leadership of Gary Aspden. Whether you’re a longtime fan or new to the world of SPZL, this collection is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the intersection of heritage and contemporary design.
