Setting you up for your time in the terraces and beyond, adidas Spezial have unveiled their Summer ’22 collection, which blends 1970s aesthetics and functional cues with subtly updated military details.

While teams across Europe have been busy unveiling their new kits ahead of the 22/23 season, the adidas Spezial Summer ’22 collection arrives as the supporters attire of choice. A seamless follow-up to the Pre-Spring ’22 Collection, it’s a carefully curated marriage of now and then, featuring an array of timeless styles.

The collection is comprised of a selection of footwear and apparel, with five sneaker silhouettes making the lineup. First up, the Adilette SPZL sees the return of the fan favourite slide in an off-white colourway with black embossed mod Trefoil and Spezial branding. The ZX 620 SPZL, meanwhile, takes cues from adidas’ famed ‘ZX Series’ with specific references to the ZX 600, ZX 555, and an assortment of mid 80s runners. Next up is an extension of adidas’ famed City Series: the Warszawa SPZL, while a lesser known flat suede shoe from the adidas archive makes its return in the form of the Stapfen SPZL. Finally, the Summer ´22 collection is capped off with the Yabisah SPZL.

Turning its focus from footwear to apparel and accessories, adidas Spezial’s Summer ‘22 collection features a number of dutifully crafted looks. Headlining with a new classic - the Calavadella Jacket – in a seasonal peach colourway. Next, the Portinatx Shorts arrive in a sand colourway with the addition of an embroidered round Mod Trefoil badge.

It wouldn’t be a Spezial collection without the inclusion of an elevated tracksuit and this season the Marnach TT does just that. A refined take on the Beckenbauer silhouette, the carefully created track top features tonal black details and silicone badges. A selection of lightweight t-shirts and polos, meanwhile, offers a number of perfect layering solutions as the months transition from warm to cold. Finally, rounding out the seasonal offering is an accessories selection made up of the classic Parbold II Bag and a graphic Patch Bucket hat.
