I know, I already posted the video a few weeks ago on my fanpage, but I just can't get enough of the video material myself and don't feel like having to watch it again and again on youtube. So I thought I'd make a little post about it and put it on my own homepage. For me, as a fan of the adidas brand, it just goes without saying that as a big fan of vintage sneakers and genuine OGs, it's just a dream that places like the one shown in the video still exist. In Argentina, somewhere in the middle of nowhere, there's a store full of original adidas items. Isn't that just pure madness? Or even better: heaven on earth? I'd love to visit this old adidas store myself and rummage through the boxes... I'm particularly impressed by the emotional attachment the owner has for his adidas products. That is real love and absolutely admirable. It almost hurt my soul how the man fought for his stuff, but in the end I think he knows himself that his store is not the right place to keep these treasures. just watch the video and you'll understand what I mean. It takes 11 minutes, but it's worth me! :)

"The adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection is a premium, archive inspired range curated by adidas aficionado Gary Aspden. Each piece looks to the brands rich design history as a starting point for its designs. After a tip off about a store stacked high with vintage adidas products Gary put together a team of fellow adidas fanatics to travel to Buenos Aires. Invitees were musician Ian Brown, notorious adidas collector Robert Brooks and adidas enthusiast Mike Chetcuti - whilst photographer Neil Bedford and film maker Greg Bond documented the trip. The objective was to find rare archive pieces for research purposes as well as vintage footwear to exhibit in the forthcoming SPEZIAL exhibition." Photos via Neil Bedford
