They may have been intended for handball, but their versatility as a casual shoe makes them truly special. Check out this classic colourway in Core Black & Yellow.
It was during the 80s where the Handball Spezial took on a whole new identity in fashion. The rise of Casual Culture in English Football signalled the rise in popularity of this low-cut shoe.
Made with nubuck suede, this particular Handball Spezial colourway is finished in a combination of Black and Yellow. Black pigskin nubuck dominates the entire upper of the shoe. While the yellow synthetic leather panels on the heel tab, tongue, and three stripes are complimented by gold-foiled lettering that reads ‘SPEZIAL’.
A thick gum rubber cup sole provides the low-profile ride that allowed handball players to get maximum court feel during the game. The main source of cushioning is found inside the shoe on the sock liner keeping you comfy for all activities.
Going to the outsole, adidas keep things interesting with two different patterns on the heel and forefoot. The heel features multiple trefoil brand logos in a herringbone pattern.
A circular suction cup can also be seen on the heel originally designed to increase court grip. On the forefoot, criss-cross lines and three circular suction cups are strategically placed to increase traction. A tried and tested concentric pattern on the ball of the foot completes the outsole.
