adidas Originals Handball Spezial
A classic 3-stripe icon and style, the adidas Originals Handball SPEZIAL was born on the handball courts of Germany in the late 1970s.
Launched in 1979 for professional handball athletes, the pair was designed to improve players' speed and grip.
The Handball SPEZIAL was all about performance at first and soon became a training essential, giving rise to a whole range of indoor silhouettes.
Gradually piling up in the stocks of collectors of the 3-stripes brand, the model quickly established itself beyond the indoor courts.
Today, the adidas Originals Handball SPEZIAL shoe emerges from the adidas archives and makes a strong comeback in its OG form in new colors.
Highlights include a premium suede upper, the famous durable rubber outsole designed for grip and speed, a toe box with T-shaped overlay and the classic adidas retro design with contrasting heel tab and 3 stripes on the sides.
