This Iteration of the adidas SPEZIAL Sneakers Honors Liam Gallagher

A new iteration of the iconic adidas SPEZIAL sneakers will be made available to consumers on August 30th.

In addition, the debut of the new adidas SPEZIAL sneakers is timed to drop in conjunction with the musician's upcoming album, titled 'Why Me? Why Not?' This is a follow-up of Gallagher's 2017 single.
