Reuniting icons, adidas Spezial and Liam Gallagher once again join forces for a brand-new LG2 SPZL trainer, which was originally announced with an intimate concert hosted in Blackburn’s King George’s Hall back in April.

Back in 2019, adidas Originals released the limited edition LG SPZL, created in collaboration with Liam Gallagher and inspired by his lifelong affinity with the brand. Now, brand and artist are back at it again, once more brought together through their enduring cultural legacies for their latest collaboration, the LG2 SPZL. 

As a lifelong fan of adidas, Gallagher has stayed loyal to the brand throughout his career, and as such the Three Stripes have been a hallmark of his style; the two just go together in a similar fashion to Beckham, although this as an off-pitch variation. And so the new shoe is a true celebration of heritage and musical legacy, blending the timeless elegance of classic archival styles with the artist’s inimitable perspective.

A worthy successor, the trainer extends a nod to the original LG SPZL shoe as the silhouette combines inspiration from archival adidas squash and indoor models. 

Exploring ‘shades of whites’ and contrasting material choices, the shoe features a chalk white nylon upper, which is sat atop a grey and white EVA Die cut midsole with a rubber outsole. A number of tonal details then give texture to the look including: light grey flocked stripes, an asymmetric suede overlay on the toe box with a matching suede overlay on the heel and an asymmetric rubber toe guard.

Meanwhile, adidas Originals’ classic Bluebird pantone also makes a return on the tongue with an instantly recognisable ‘Endorsed by Liam Gallagher’ portrait graphic. Finally, finishing the silhouette off is a print of the adidas Spezial Mod Trefoil logo on the right heel moustache. Each pair then comes replete with custom packaging comprising: a box 'portrait' sticker which also pays homage to vintage adidas boxes (and the first LG SPZL release) and an ‘endorsed by Liam Gallagher’ leather hangtag portrait.
