Detailed Look At The adidas Spezial Hochelaga

Although adidas hails from Germany, the sportswear giant treks the globe for collaborations and inspiration on its various sneakers. One sneaker with a cult-like following and often looking to regions worldwide for colorways is the adidas Spezial. This handball-ready sneaker skyrocketed in popularity in the mid-2010s, with The Three Stripes using the model across a series of special releases - many of which look to cities. Although we have already seen Hochelaga (the name of the native village the city of Montreal was built on) receive its own Spezial in the past, another colorway honoring the location is headed our way in 2023.

Taking on a clean white, navy, and red combo on its upper, the Spezial swaps out its usual suede construction for an all-leather build on this Hochelaga colorway. Inspiration for this color combination comes from vintage colorways of adidas Montreal (the silhouette this Spezial mimics) featuring navy and red. The exact overlay and underlay placement seen on other Spezial's is present with a small leather patch on the toe and the eyestays featuring jagged edges. Three Stripes branding on the midfoot comes in a combo of navy and red, with the city of Hochelaga getting stamped in gold nearby. Another hit of navy is found on the heel tab, which features an adidas logo on the left sneaker and a symbol likely representing Hochelaga on the right. Rounding out the design is the gum rubber midsole and outsole.

The adidas Spezial Hochelaga will be released in 2023 through adidas and select retailers online and in-store. As of now, sizing and pricing information is TBA.
