adidas Spezial & Liam Gallagher Launch New LG2 SPZL Colourway

First debuted by the musician ahead of his performance at London’s iconic KOKO concert venue in August 2023, adidas Spezial and Liam Gallagher have officially unveiled a new colourway for the LG2 SPZL trainer.

Just over a year on from the first LG2 SPZL launch in 2022, adidas Spezial and Liam Gallagher have come together once again to present a new colourway of the hybrid silhouette. Marking their third collaborative release and following on from the release of the artist’s latest album, Knebworth 22, the updated colourway is a celebration of adidas’ heritage and Liam’s musical legacy.

The latest colourway of the LG2 SPZL pays homage to early iterations of the adidas Country – with a different material mix – combining a bottle green heel and stripes with a gum outsole and a chalk white upper.

A fitting successor to the original LG SPZL trainer, the LG2 SPZL silhouette itself offers nods to a number of different historical adidas footwear references and was designed with direct input from Liam himself – featuring the artist’s instantly recognisable portrait on the tongue.

The LG2 was first introduced with the SS22 SPZL range and is a continuation of the original Spezial LG from FW19. The shoes have a nylon upper, flock 3-Stripes, suede overlays and leather on the eyestay and heel collar. The tooling consists of an EVA die-cut midsole, an asymmetrical toe guard and a rubber outsole. Branding is visible on the tongue, with an "Endorsed by Liam Gallagher" graphic and a classic mod Trefoil on the heel signing off in style.

The new colourway of the adidas Spezial x LG2 SPZL trainers will release on the 8 September through the adidas Confirmed app and Spezial stockists.
