Originally introduced in 1979 for professional handball players, the adidas Handball Spezial quickly became adopted into the terrace world, shedding its performance-based skin for more lifestyle focused applications. Boasting a more streamlined shape than that of its familiar counterparts and undeterred by the fallible nature of trends, the sneakers stay true to their original makeup, ensuring their vast heritage history and subtle intricacies remain intact.
Made primarily from a soft suede, the sneakers come presented in a vibrant Scarlet Red coating with contrasting hits of White found in the form of both a subtle heel collar panel and perforated edge Three Stripe branding. To the front a classic take on the iconic T-toe overlay can be found for additional structural support whilst a compact Gum midsole and Metallic Gold branding complete the design.
Grab a better look below, and you can find the adidas Handball Spezial “Scarlet Red” available at select retailers such as Aphrodite and soon on adidas.com. The retail price tag is set at $100 USD.
